Pardon my ignorance on stuff like this.. my Gigabyte Technology Co. Ltd. H110M-S2H-CF (U3E1) motherboard currently has 8gb of Ram (2x4) but when I look at Speccy for details it states 8.00GB Dual-Channel Unknown @ 1200MHz (17-17-17-39) (more info below)

I want to upgrade to 16gb - will both DDR3 and DDR4 RAM work, or can I only use one. If so, which? And secondly, am based in UK, annyone know of any great RAM deals which would work in my PC...

Says it uses DDR4.  DDR3 will not work.


Appears you only have two slots for RAM from the spec so Speccy may be wrong.  Time to open it up and look to make sure.  I would pull one of the RAMs and get the part number off it then google it to make sure you know what you have.
