4GB + 8GB DDR3L-1600 SODIMM?

Hi. I have a Acer Aspire E5-571 laptop. It currently already has a stick of 4GB DDR3L-1600 SODIMM in it. Is it ok to add one stick of 8GB DDR3L-1600 SODIMM to make it 12GB? Or must I upgrade in pairs?

It is Ok to have two different size modules installed.   

 

Have you confirmed it has just a single 4GB module installed?  Many times computer manufacturers will install two smaller modules at the factory.

12GB ram give the better performance. so its okk to add 8GB stick into 4GB.

be sure both have on the same DDR3L platform.
