So i have a machine (unfortunately not bought via OCUK) which has a single 16Gb Corsair Vengeance DD4 3200 16-20-20-38 1.35v. However, whilst I don't need to increase to 32GB now prices make sense and struggling to get my eldest anything else for Xmas.

I am struggling to match the product code of CM4X16GC3200C16K2E for anything less than £130.

Do i bother to try and match the existing stick or look at buying a new 16Gb pair for 32Gb off here (Team Vulcan, Ballistix, etc) and sell the other.
Intel motherboard.
Thanks

You could pick up 1x 16gb 3000mhz of simmlar ram and both will run at that speed or go for 32gb and sell the single stick.

Does it matter which of these I buy? Assume the price difference is less than £5

My basket at Overclockers UK:
Total: £227.68 (includes shipping: £8.70)
Get the Teamgroup. Its on BF offer right now & its a bonkers price for 32GB of DDR4.
Patriot viper steel 3600mhz is on for £90.

Think it makes sense to go for new 32Gb and try and sell the single stick to someone else in my situation.
I'd go for a new 32gb kit to avoid any potential compatibility issues and there are some deals going on ram right now.
