True - but it doesn't come with any guarantees ...

Particularly if you intend running dual channel RAM.

It is generally advised that if RAM is to be used in dual channel mode, not only should each stick of RAM be from the same maker, but the serial numbers should be as close to sequential as possible, to show that the RAM came from the same batch of the production process and were made at the same time.

But that is only for critical RAM assembly. If you don't intend running dual channel RAM, having the same PC-speed and capacity should be alright. Just make sure the RAM-density is the same (make sure they all have the same type of chips on each stick - all either single-sided or all double-sided).

But there are no guaranties that this will work.

You need to look at the Specifications of the M'Boards involved here and use one with a similar specification for it's Memory..
