Hello everyone

I have decided upgrade my Mid 2012 MacBook Pro (MD101) RAM

Default is 2*2GB = 4GB RAM


I would like just install one 8GB Crucial RAM 1600MHz module in one slot

8GB Crucial RAM + 2GB default Apple RAM = 10 GB

I know matched pair of module is better but by this plan if I need In future can buy another 8GB and upgrade to 16GB

my question is :

May this configuration with different module will damage my MBP or impact performance?

Whether this (8GB+2GB=10GB RAM) with different brand will better than (2*4GB=8GB RAM) with same brand and matched pair of modules?

Thanks in advance for your answers
