  1. If it is not too expensive i would recommend just checking that your mobo supports 8gbs and just purchase another four gigs of the Reaper
  2. that motherboard will support more RAM, if i were you, i would get the same exact 2 x 2gb OCZ kit that you currently have to avoid mismatch conflicts in speeds or latency.

    Also, another note, if you're overclocking, sometimes having all 4 RAM slots filled with RAM sticks can cause overclocking instability and usually needs a RAM volt increase to 2.0 or 2.1
