Good morning! Thanks for posting. Good to see you. My name Is ******* (edited for personal content), I am a computer tech from San Dimas, Ca. I have over 10 years of experience and hopefully this will help you.
Your motherboard DH61WW has 2 DIMM slots made to hold 8GB of Total Memory, maximum Speed of 1333Mhz. So in short yes, you adding a 4GB 1333Mhz RAM Module will up your system memory to 6GB. But it will be in SINGLE Channel mode. Which isn't the optimal configuration.Now, if I may a better solution would to replace the current module you have and purchase a Kit of 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1333Mhz Memory that is on the QVL (qualified Vendor List) and this would allow the memory to run in it's most optimal conifguration, Dual-Channel Mode.
We want QVL memory because that memory would be supported my Intel, and will work without any hiccups. Now granted, RAM is RAM. But let's stick with QVL Certified RAM for the sake of the Intel Forums.
Here is a few options for you
QVL for this motherboard:
Kingston Seems to be on the QVL so lets go with them.

And since you like Corsair
If this answered your question please choose it for the answer! If not, reply and I will try to help you more!

Hi Wali - I suggest you read paragraph 1.6 and 1.6.1 of the system spec for your board. You can find it here. http://downloadmirror.intel.com/19711/eng/DH61WW_TechProdSpec03.pdf There are also links in this spec to the Intel tested memory for your board. Your proposed upgrade is possible but it is not the optimum solution. I would recommend you buy a matched pair that meet the specs. Regards. Peter
Hi Frank, (Pardon me, I have read your name from left panel)
Thank you for your kind response.
By providing me the complete technical in-depth details of my motherboard and by sharing some very useful links, you have truly made my day! As far as my decision for upgrading is concerned, I think I should go for Kingston 8GB kit to boost up my system speed as its included in Qualified Vendor List (QVL) as well.
