I purchased an Omen Obelisk from BestBuy and it came with only 16gb of HyperX 2666 ram. I would like to purchase another stick of it, however for some reason I can't find the exact model for sale.
I have model: HP26D4U9D8ME-16X, How do I get another stick of the same model so I can run the ram dual channel? I am to the point where I would buy someone's unused ram stick just to avoid buying a brand new 32gb pair. Thanks all!
Solved! Go to Solution.

You don't need to buy the exact same part to get the dual data rate performance.
You just need to purchase a matching capacity memory module with the same specs.
Just get one of the 16 GB memory modules offered by Crucial, who guarantee compatibility.
Looks like one of the Crucial Ballistix modules would be comparable to the HyperX.

Oh hey thanks! I'm guessing that I will go ahead and get a matching RGB set of ram. If that crucial at least had a heat sink attached to it, it would look okay. I took out the one fan in the omen and added 3 RGB fans and an AIO for some flair.

You're very welcome.
It looks like the Ballistix sticks do. Click on the view more link under the memory list.
Like this one for example. Looks like they sell them with white, gray and red heat shields.
