    Hi folks

    Would need your opinions on memory compatibility.

    I have two sets of DDR3 memory. 2 x 4 Gb in each case. One set of Ares and one set of Ripjaws. Here is the link that compares the two. Except for the heat spreader, they look identical to me. Same manufacturer, same Cas latency, same timings. Only the model is different. Under the heat spreader, they must be identical chips.

    https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Productcompare.aspx?CompareItemList=147|20-231-428^20-231-428,20-231-544^20-231-544

    Right now, the Ripjaws are used. Ares still in the box.

    My question is: Can I use both in my system (mobo: Gigabyte H97-D3H) without any problem for a total of 16 Gb insted of 8 Gb? I would not want to damage anything.

    Thank you

    Sorry. I forgot I had already asked that question. I guess I am getting old. 69 very soon...
