    Hey guys, this might be a very noobie question but I've never mixed different styles of ram before but wanting to check.

    I currently have:

    In my system but are wanting to purchase these:

    Or even these because of being dual channel:

    Will these be compatible together or not?

    Many thanks

    x99 detests mismatched memory, it play havoc with the training and you'll have no chance of getting anywhere near xmp speeds. Ditch the dual channel and get the 16gb quad kit.

    So yh, basically I'm asking if 2 sets of the vengeance rgb in dual channel would be compatible with my 2 sets of vengeance lpx in dual channel or would I just be better off scrapping the sets I have for the quad rgb?

    Get the Rgb quad and sell the dual channel kit, as i said x99 hates mixing memory.
