My System Specs


The only caveat that I'd add is that (IMO) adding memory of the same make/model at a later date won't always ensure fully compatible memory. Mem manufacturers have a habit of changing their chips without changing the SKU as long as the main settings remain the same (i.e. 9-9-9-24) which sometimes can result in large differences for the secondary settings that most folks don't normally see or mess with.

With that in mind, I personally buy my sets all together in the hopes that I get the same lot (and thus the exact same chips).
MSI Z87I Gaming AC / i7 4770K / 2X 8G Gskill 1866 Sniper / XFX XTR 750 / EVGA GTX 680 SC+ 2GB / Intel 730 Series 480GB SSD / Seagate Barracuda 1TB
Inwin 904 / Swiftech MCP655-b / Alphacool NexXxos XT45 120 Rad / 2X Scythe GT AP-15 / EK Supreme HF / Dell UltraSharp U2412M

Asrock AM1H-ITX / AM1 Athlon 5350 / 2X4G Gskill PC3-14900 / Intel 6235 Wi-Fi / 90W Targus Power Brick / 250G Samsung 840 Series SSD / Mini-Box M350 / 1X 22" Dell IPS / 1X 22" HP
