4GB@1600 or 8GB@1333? If I force OC the 1333 will it affect the other?

I have a 1333GHz Kingston stick labeled 1.5v (really ordinary, idk what the model is called) and a 1600 HyperX labeled 1.65v - both timings unknown*

Should I keep the 1600 4GB (and maybe even take it to 1800) or use both at 1333(if im not mistaken, it works at the speed of the lowest)?
If the answer is keep the 4GB then can I OC the the lower one to 1600 and if it breaks i wont matter, or will it also harm the proper 1600 one?

*If someone can explain timings and what to do with them then it's much appreciated


Also, don't say any useless stuff about compatibility, they work 100% and I don't wanna hear sh** about that. Seriously dont bring that topic up at all.

Since you seem to know everything already, why even bother posting, you are not going to take the correct advice, so I say do whatever you think. But I will tell you this, you won't notice any difference at all in performance by changing the RAM speed.

Did I say that?
You sound pissed off, what is it exactly in my post that sounded rude to you, I intended none. But you sure did.

Simple question, will my other stick break if I mess with one.
