Pairing a Crucial Ballistix Elite 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-2666 Memory BLE8G4D26AFEA

Hi Guys,

 

I wanted to ask a legitimate question about pairing my Crucial Ballistix Elite 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-2666 Memory (BLE8G4D26AFEA). This is a single 8GB ram module that i am currently using in my system and I am planning on buying another of this memory module same part number to have a Dual Channel setup.

 

Is this going to be an issue or will there be an issue to achieve a Dual Channel setup? Because technically there is a Dual Channel memory kit of the same memory speed 16GB Kit (2x8GB) (BLE2K8G4D26AFEA).

 

Here is the link of the specs for reference: https://cc.cnetcontent.com/inlinecontent/mediaserver/m93/893/a86/893a8623de9b47cdbe567139abf8cd9a/or...
