I purchased a set of Gskill memory

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


I then determined that 1 stick was bad due to some BSOD's and random restarts and more BSOD's I also ran MEMTEST. I had to RMA the sticks but I could not be down and out for too long because I need the PC for work.

I ran over to microcenter and picked up these

Comparison

Everything works fine. I intended to Sell the GSKILL once They returned from RMA but as the price of them has dropped I doubt that I will get my moneys worth for them. I therefore decided to use them in my PC for a total of 12GB of RAM. Will I run into any serious trouble? Can I down volt the Patriot to 1.6 and run them with the GSKILL?

This is my Motherboard

System Specs

Core i7 930 w Megahalems Cooler
Coolermaster HAF Black Case
Dual ATI RADEON 5870 in Crossfire
Corsair SSD
Western Digital Black 1tb Storage


I have overclocked nothing and only plan on overclocking the CPU to something respectable eventually. Any help would be appreciated.

Your chosen memory is good. Patriot Sector 7 is good. In fact, you can't go wrong with either. Both has lifetime warranty.

Yah, you can use them both G.SKill & Patriot. Just remember that you may need to set the voltage to the higher requirements one: Example:
Patriot: 8-9-8-24 @1.6V
G.SKill: 9-9-9-24 @1.5V

then you must set it to 'higher ones' position setting, all at 9-9-9-24 @1.6V.
