    First of all that ram you posted its not a upgrade its a downgrade to ddr3? lol (does you predator have ddr3 ?) i you want to upgrade to 16gb ddr4 i recommend buying either 2x8 dual channel or buy exactly the same specs of the sodimm you have installed or it wont work in dual channel or just buy 1x16 :)

    if you are going to spend money on hyperx go for 2666 just my advice anyway and 2x8 dual channel performs much better than 1x16 on single channel
