Dear friends,
 
I have a desktop pc with asus H81M-E motherboard, intel core i3 4130 processor and transcend DDR3 2048 MB, 1333 MHz ram. I want to buy and install another ram to the motherboard to increase the memory but I have some confusions to clarify. The motherboard has one empty ram slot.
 
Should I buy a ram with the same specifications from the same manufacturer? I read in a website that to avoid conflict 2 rams in two different slots installed in a motherboard should have the same specifications from the same manufacturer. What if I buy and install a 2GB/4GB ram with 1600 MHz bus speed from a different manufacturer? Will that produce terrible conflict with the existing ram? In my area rams are available from different manufacturers like - adata, avexir, corsair, g. skill, geil, kingston, team, transcend, twinmos, hp etc.
 
Your kind suggestions are highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Basically you could put any 2GB/4GB stick from any manufacturer at any speed at least 1333 MHz.

 

That "same specifications from same manufacturer" is simply to make random compatibility problems less likely. But as you simply cannot avoid random compatibility problems 100% sure, that matters very little.

Specs

 

As stated above.

 

It it were me...I would forget about the 2GB module and just buy a pair of modules, such as This.  A pair will allow you to run in dual-channel mode.
