The only reason I could think you might have problems is if your running it in dual channel mode and you have different size modules in one channel

the only kind of ram i know to be picky about ram being exactly the same is RAMBUS. so assuming you are not using rambus, your ok.

It will work together, but in my personal experience, ya get memory errors like BSOD's etc, thats what i was refering to. Ive dealt with loads of pcs in the past where they are getting random crashes etc from different modules
