Looking to add another 16GB of RAM to my system.

Currently running:

MSI Z97 Gaming 9 AC Intel Z97 (Socket 1150) DDR3" mobo
and
"Avexir Blitz 1.1 Original 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 PC3-17000C9 2133MHz Dual Channel" memory

Anyone able to point me in the direction of some affordable kits to run alongside this? Anything on ebay or secondhand is also fine.

Cheers in advance,
Roy

Try picking up the same kit if you can find any used/2nd hand and if not then I'd look for something with the same speed/timings.

At least memory is the one thing at the moment that is still cheap! Good time to buy. Personally I would sell your current set and buy a 2 x 16gb set but its up to you..

Hope your CPU (assuming 4770k-4790k or similar) is a good sample as 32GB (4x8GB Modules) is extra hard on the integrated memory controller esp. if you have an OC'd CPU.

I am about to find out when my 32GB 2133mhz Dominator Platinum 1.65v arrives going from 16GB Vengeance Pro 1866mhz @ 2200mhz 1.5v, I need to hit 2400mhz with around the same tight timings 9 10 9 27 currently at 1.55v to make it worth it but seen reviews on Amazon with customers have done so and even may be able to lower voltage.

I could have bought 2400mhz kits but none were 32GB and trying to find 2 matching 16GB with same version numbers was hard.
