Dual channel with different color sticks

As the title say I want to upgrade my RAM from 8 GB single channel to 16 dual channel, the "problem" is I have a red stick and now it cost more than 10 euro than the white one, the RAM apart the color is the same Ballistix sport LT 2400Mhz dual rank, Is possible?
Thanks

Re: Dual channel with different color sticks

Hi Gregg,

 

Thanks for your message. To have true dual channel mode you would need to have parts that are matching completely. From the same batch even. You could definitley add a different color  Ballistix module, but it wouldn't be able to achieve full dual channel. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

And with a same color stick but single rank (mine is dual) can't work either right?
