I currently have Transcend (2GB+4GB) RAM in Dual Channel mode, and i want to replace 2GB with 8GB RAM for overall 12GB RAM (4+8).

Am getting an offer for Corsair Vengeance 8GB RAM. Since its advisable to have same brand RAM/Latency/Speed, i doubt whether the Corsair Vengeance 8GB will work along with Transcend 4GB RAM.

Below are the model & specifications.

- Transcend (2GB +4GB) - https://www.transcend-info.com/Products/No-479

- Corsair Vengeance 8GB RAM - https://www.corsair.com/uk/en/Categ...ce®-—-8GB-DDR3-Memory-Kit/p/CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10

Can you please advise on whether this will work?

Go with Corsair Vengeance 8GB. As long as the latencies are same they will work.

I have the Vengeance myself. Get Cpu-z and check the timings of your existing modules. If they are the same you'll be good to go.

I have previously coupled or say mixed all Corsairs: vengeance, xms3, value and dominators. All went good with no need for any manual BIOS adjustments etc. The timings get auto adjusted for every stick to the lowest ones.
No bsods or game stuttering or fps drops.

Tried mixing Transcend, Corsair & Kingston as well and it went good as well.

Have tried mix of few amd and intel builds.

As for manual timings I tried tweaking and matching and even OC and then too these combos worked cool.

Just dont do coupling of Gskills and ocz with each other or with other brands they seldom pair properly without further isues. Now this may depend from build to build but better not to as had bad experiences.

Even with different ram timing? I have one with c16 and another one with c17 and when I put them in a group in A1 and A2 they won't work!
They'll only work if they are in A2 AND B2 respectively! Is that fine?
