    Ranger - Upgrading from 8 to 16GB RAM


    I'm thinking to upgrade memory capability of my rig.
    I'll get out my 8GB (2x4GB) kit and install a fresh new kit of 16GB (2x8GB).
    First kit that got my attention is this fresh one, but is not QVL certified (list not updated):
    Second kit is QVL certified for my Ranger board and has a slightly better price:
    Both have XMP profile. Only thing is CPU capablity to cope with these memory specs.

    Appreciate your comments.

    DDR4 3000 should be easy to cope with but don't expect it to be plug-n-play on all CPUs though.

    I agree, no plug and play. If timing and frequency is the same, only difference is LED. I bet there should be no problem.
