I have http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... running at 5-6-6-18 at 1.8v(well thats what cpu-z tells me). I purchased http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... this runs at 5-5-5-18 at 2.1V - 2.2V. Now when i put the second set in, my computer crashed like every 5 minutes. I know your not supposed to mix ram with different voltages and timings. My question is : How do I get both of them to be stable together?

You can experiment with the ram voltage setting. Set the timings to the slower 5-6-6-18 manually and the voltage at 2.0. If your motherboard doesn't allow you to increase the ram voltage, then they may not run well together. My board has 1.95 as the lowest ram voltage even though my ram is rated at 1.8.

my original set of ram is supposed to be 2.1v but my comp runs it at 1.8
