Well, I need RAM. I know what kind of RAM is compatible, what type it is, all that good stuff.
The thing I want to know is can I put in two different kinds of RAM chips in my computer? Like two different brands.

can I mix 4 gb of DDR3 CONSAIR RAM with 8 Gb of DDR3 ADATA?

Is it ok if they are the same brand?

4 gb of DDR3 Consair RAM with 8 gb of DDR3 Consair RAM

To sum it all up the question is can I mix RAM or do they have to be the exact same kind?

Although not optimal it should work. It is always best to have matching memory but unless there is a clock difference or frequency difference you should have no problems.
12 gigs of memory you should have no problem running multiple apps at the same time.
