I've 8 GB Kingston RAM 2133mhz without heat sinks DDR 4 (I guess). I've been thinking to upgrade RAM and adding another 8GB stick. Should I go for a heatsink version or without heat sink stick. Also, suggest the brand/model. Here's my PC Specs:
Intel Core i5 7400 3.00 Gigahertz
Kingston 250 GB SSD
Western Digital 1TB HDD
Western Digital 500 GB HDD
500 watts Cooler Master PSU
Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050Ti 8GB

Forgot to include your motherboard as that will dictate ram speeds. Heat spreaders aren't necessary but are convenient for handling.

Mixing ram isn't guaranteed like buying a set but you can try and could work long as they're the same specs.

Maximum speed you can go for is 2400.

Crucial, Corsair and Gskill are few brands i recommend. I prefer Gskill personally because i've had good experiences with them. Corsair also. Crucial are known to be decent but haven't tried theirs.

2x8GB kit of 2400 with lowest CL possible, 15 or under. Better quality ram with tighter timings at the same frequency.

So in simple words, I should go for a G skill 2400 8gb X 2 sticks to get the best speed and discard my kingston 2133mhz 8 gb stick?
