Different Ram & Duel Channel

Last response: in Motherboards

My computer is currently duel-channeling
2 G.SKILL DDR3 1333 (2x2G), 8 Cas Latency 8-8-8-21 sticks.
I have another duel channel available, and am wondering if the following will be compatable with it:
2 OCZ DDR3 1333 (2x4G), 9 Cas Latency 9-9-9-20 sticks.
What are the problems I will encounter when trying to run these together, and how can I work around them?
(Incase you need to know, my mb is Asus P7P55SD)

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

U can install both kits and those will run without problems, but bear in mind that the CL8 of the 1st kit will rise to the CL9 of the 2nd kit.

Also, be sure that the voltage is good for both kits.

set the ram voltage to 1.65v the 1.5v sticks will be fine at that voltage
