Thanks for reading this through. Right now I have a 3x2GB kit of OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 CAS 7 RAM. I want to get another kit, but I can't seem to find it on Newegg and most places seem to be out of stock. I have looked at Newegg further and found the kit I have to be discontinued, which is too bad. I have found this kit http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... , which is a 3x2GB DDR3 PC3-12800 CAS 8 RAM. I don't mind running both kits at CAS 8, because I may have to due to the IMC. Do you think I would have any issues running both of these kits together on my ASUS P6T motherboard. If it helps, I'm running my CPU @ 3.7GHz 195MHz x 19.

It depends, as long as the ASUS P6T Mobo supports both RAM's speed and
latencies (which it think it does), both will run without any problems or issues of
whatsoever.
When it comes to overclocking, you just have to set all Rams to the same
timings and latencies, meaning?.. Your current OCZ ram, set it to the same CAS as
those Ram you'll want to buy (from the link you posted), in that way, they'll run in
in harmony along with your OC'ed procie and will eliminate potential system issues
in the long run. Also, thus providing consistent Ram speed and performance.


Hope this helps. :)

I assumed that much, but wanted some reassurance from others. Thanks

I just ordered a 6GB kit for my system. Newegg has a $15 OCZ RAM until the end of the day.
