Hello,

Can you guys help me with this?

I built my hackintsoh in 2020 with only 16GB of RAM and I'm looking to upgrade it.

Currently installed is

2 x 8GB Corsair DDR4 Vengeance LPX Black C15 3000MHz (CMK16GX4M2B3000C15)

I am finding it hard to buy a 16GB version of the C15 3000MHz

Do you think a C16 version will run ok alongside the C15? I'm looking at this:

2 x 16GB Corsair DDR4 Vengeance LPX Black C16 3000MHz (CMK16GX4M1D3000C16)

Why not? The first pair might drop to C16, meaning a little slower. But I doubt you will notice.

If you have doubts, check the memory compatibility list for your motherboard on the manufacturer's site.

@Nicholox you can of cause just scale down the first pair to C16 in the bios memory section of your mobo.
