    G551JM Ram upgrade

    I bought this great laptop I'm loving it, I want to upgrade it to 16 gb ( Using Oracle VM to test some virtual machine) There is a Samsung 8 gb actually insice its a cas 11. Could I mix it with a 8 GB of cas 11 from other brand or should I replace both slot.

    Thanks for any advice.

    It's best if you match the make and model of all memory modules. You can get away with mixing brands, although sometimes doing so causes instability.
    We customize Asus, MSI, and Clevo laptops!

    Agreed, I would never put anything but the exact same brand / model across all chips. Even if mixed RAM would work, you might encounter BSODs or crashes here or there

    OK I would buy the same brand, Samsung in my case, but it might not be possible to get the exact same ID since sometimes the ones in the laptop are older and not on sale anymore. But you should be able to get the successor, with the same specs. My two do differ in the last parts of the ID. I do a memtest to see that everything is working. But I would never buy a new pair.
