I recently purchased
DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Timing 9-9-9-24
Cas Latency 9
Voltage 1.5V

will it interfere with my current
DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Timing 8-8-8-24
Cas Latency 8
Voltage 1.5V

Or will I have to go with only 1 of these sets.

Not smart to mix sets, but as long as you have them, set to manual then freq to 1600, base timings to 9-9-9-24, CR to 2T or 2N, DRAM voltage to 1.55 and raise the MC Voltage about + 0.065 - if this doesn't help let me know mobo and CPU
