Are there any benefits to using identical memory modules?
I have a pair of mismatched RAM sticks in my laptop (slots 3 & 4 in the following image):
I have a matching Micron stick, but getting at the Hyundai to replace it is going to be a pain (unlike the other 3 slots, this one requires removing ~30 screws and the screen to get at, my laptop is Asus G53SW).
I've been told pairing RAM from different manufacturers can cause problems. Is this true, or should I just leave the mismatched pair as is?
