I think this upgrade would be compatible but i would like somebody to confirm it please.

As far as I know it would work but I would lose some speed if both RAM work at CL10.

In terms of how much speed and if it's even noticeable got no idea....

 

Posting my specs:

 

MOBO               Gigabyte Z77-D3H, socket 1155

RAM                  Kit Dual Channel Corsair 8GB (2 x 4GB), DDR3, 1600MHz (CL9)

 

I want to add this to my system:

Kit Dual Channel Corsair 16GB (2 x 8GB), DDR3, 1600Mhz (CL10)

I would go to Corsair and use their compatibility checker -

thanks, can't figure out how to work that link and check compatibility

i guess i will just buy 16gb cl10 or cl11 because they are cheaper and hope not to lose too much speed

will try to sell my old ram after that, they are in good condition and have a lifetime warranty

I would not worry about it, that sort of thing only makes a small amount of difference.

If you can get CL9 for cheaper go for it, and if you can go CL11 for cheaper go for it.

You would be fine either way.

Depends on what you can get, if you can get the CL11 set for a reasonable price go for it.

CL9 is better but its going to be up to price,

It's interesting that the Crucial System Scanner now reports based upon motherboard.   At one time it did its reporting based on the make and model of the computer itself, which was a bit more "typical user friendly."  (Though, to be honest, I have no idea how much most people paid attention to the top part of the report, anyway).

 

I've run this scanner enough times to snag screen shots to know that it did not previously report this computer with, "HP - Compaq HP 22CD Motherboard," at the top.
