Anxious about RAM Compatibility

So I'm looking to get a second kit of RAM to go along with 8GB already installed.

The problem is, the first pair of sticks were Kingston HyperX RED Limited Edition, 1600MHz DDR3 - am I out of luck, or is there a way to get a pair that will be compatible with these?

Does it matter as long as you have the same speed (1600), if I were to, say, get HyperX Black?

Best solution

You have to look the timing also, the red version has 9-9-9-27 like blue version http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0037TO5C0/?tag=pcpapi-20
But remember some CPU's doesnt support well quad channel RAMs is better to have 2x8GB not 4x4GB.
What CPU do u have ?
