Compatibility Scanner

Trying for thrid #%*&*(% time.

 

Trying this again because when I went to post, Crucial had logged me out ... frustrating. This is going to be shorter?

Can I buy ANY memory listed in the scanner results and it will work with my existing memory? Or do memory cards still need to be matched?

I have one 8GB card and the results were single 4-16GB cards, plus several pairs of cards.

@grpdiver I am sorry for the issues you had posting your message and it timing out. You can buy any upgrade listed from the scanner and they will work with your system. However, in some cases they will not work with existing RAM. This is usually pretty rare and most upgrades will work together. We have no way of guaranteeing a different manufacturers RAM will work with ours. If you have the make and model of your system I would be happy to check into it further for you and see if we have any notes on our end that state you need matched pairs.

Re: Compatibility Scanner

@grpdiver It looks like you shouldn't have any issues with the existing RAM and new upgrade from what I can see on my end. You may purchase the upgrade you would like from the scan page. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

Re: Compatibility Scanner

That did not answer my questions in my original:

 

Can I buy ANY memory listed in the scanner results and it will work with my existing memory?

Or do memory cards still need to be matched?

Re: Compatibility Scanner

@grpdiver It should work with your existing RAM. We can not test all possible existing RAM upgrades with our RAM to guarantee it, but it is fairly rare for them not to work together. Memory cards should not need to be matched with your system.
