Increased RAM

It's been awhile since I've been inside my computers; for DDR3L Ram, do I have to install RAM modules in pairs or can I do a single module install; i.e. remove the 4G currently installed and replace with an 8G mod; can I leave the 4G installed and fill 2nd slot with an 8G for 12G total.  If I do the 12G what is the order for amt in 1 & 2 slot?

Re: Increased RAM

Hello Newerr5,


 Thank you for your questions.


In some systems it does need matching memory to be compatible.  This is not all systems and I would need to know the make and model of your computer before I could give the best advise.


If you confirm the make and model of your computer, I will send the recommended links and also the installation guides.  It would also be great if you could confirm what country you’re based in.  This is so I am sending the correct links for your country.  If you do have any other questions at all, please don’t hesitate to ask.
