I just noticed the RAM on my Asus Z170Pro Gaming MB has two open slots, and I'm getting odd memory issues when opening one of my high volume Word documents loaded with numerous fonts. My RAM is 2x 16GB DDR4 3000 Mhz DS Performance Series. I'm wanting to fill the other two open slots. Will any matching 16 gig DDR4 3000Mhz RAM suffice? I'm thinking yes, but I wanted to make sure before spending a couple 100 quid. I'm thinking Crucial or G. Skill. Thoughts?

Hi.
I want to say yes but I would try to match brands also. And you know you have to get a kit with same timings, etc. "(M)atching" is more than just size.

My understanding is that all RAM sticks should match brand, size, and timings these days. You will be safest to replace the RAM with all new. Your mobo manual (or online available specs) will tell you what your board will accept. Be sure to check first that your current RAM is being recognized. It could be that one stick has gone bad, and you don't really need more than 32GB.

RAM is pretty much a commodity manufactured by a very few and often branded by others. In many cases, a brand name doesn't mean much. Since it's not something that varies much from maker to maker, you are relatively free to choose according to price, timings, speed or whatever criteria you select as important to you.
