    You can add new ram anytime you want. Just make sure you have an open slot.

    The only thing I have to say is make sure yu get the same exact RAM as what you already have. It's best to stay on the safe side. If you do end up getting a different brand of RAM make sure you get a stick at speed of 2400 Mhz. Always make sure all your sticks of RAM run at same Mhz.

  2. I've had no issues mixing RAM. That doesn't mean it is 100% guaranteed to work though. It could work fine with RAM from a different manufacturer and with different specs, and it could fail getting the exact same model of RAM you already have. Want that 100% guarantee to work? buy a 16GB kit. Don't mind the small chance it might not? Grab the cheapest RAM that comes closest to your current RAM's speed and timings. Mind you though (and yeah, this is a Capt'n Obvious statement) you can't Mix DDR, DDR2, DDR3, or DDR4. THAT part cannot change, period. Speed? Timings? Those are easier if they are the same, but not 100% required to be the same.

    Funny. I got a rig I retired that was running 4GB DDR3-1600 and 8GB DDR3-2133.... No issues when I ran it at 1600 and the slower timings. Besides, still no 100% guarantee with same speed or same brand/SKU/model number. It's a craps-shoot, with the odds in your favor the vast majority of the time.
