24890 RAM
Quick question guys, I've got some RAM:

16GB Corsair/Crucial PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3 Memory (2 x 8GB sticks)

I want to crack it up to 32gig. I know I'll have to upgrade windows that not a problem but what I'm not 100% sure on and will like some help with is will these ram sticks be combatable and turn it up to 32gig?

thanks guys.

Are you asking whether or not your current corsair RAM will be compatible with different corsair RAM?

I'll answer anyway, but not necessarily. They need to have the same timings and bandwidth, just buy 2 more sticks of the same RAM and you'll be golden.

Do all the numbers match the ones you have already? Chances are your motherboard has the RAM slots in multiple channels (e.g. four slots usually means two channels) so as long as you end up with each channel having a matching pair of sticks you should be fine. Be aware that the teeth are out of spec. They make the chips taller than they're supposed to be, and given the RAM slots are usually near the processor this means they intrude into the processor's airspace, which could be a problem if your cooling setup is anything other than the block that came with the CPU.
