    How many RAM slots do you have? Any particular reason you want more than 16gb of RAM? It is a lot and I wouldn't have thought would it make anything other than really intensive tasks like video editing quicker.

    Fair enough, there is no reason any compatible DDR3 wouldn't work. But I'd go with what you have selected matching speed and brands.
