Compatibility question? CMP8GX3M2A1600C9 + M5A99X EVO

I had a question about the ram i'm going to get for my PC. If i buy 2 sets of CMP8GX3M2A1600C9 will i be able to run them with my motherboard and processor at rated speeds? I'm upgrading the CPU to a FX6350 if that helps.

  3. Not a good idea to mix sets, even of the same exact model, generally if they don't want to play you can get them to with slight voltage adjustments, which wouldn't really be the case here as these are at 1.65, which is really suggested for 1600 sticks....JEDEC standard is 1.5, 1.65 usually doesn't come into play until 2133 and above....it's often a sign of weak ICs (memory chips) with 1600 sticks
