I was wondering if anyone knows some brand options that would be compatible with this specific type of ram since its been discontinued. I have 2gb x3 (6gb) in tripple channel but would like to upgrade to 12gb 2 sets of 6gb... Right now my system is overclocked as well.

It's nearly impossible to mix ram sticks when overclocked. I would leave your system alone if the overclock is stable, unless you can match your current ram.

Best bet, try to buy directly -> http://www.mushkin.com/Memory/Redline/998691.aspx

You can try eBay e.g. http://cgi.ebay.com/Mushkin-Redline-6GB-3x2GB-DDR3-PC-1...

Otherwise, you'll need to manually set the CAS and hope all goes well:

1600 6-7-6-18 @ 1.65v Redline
1600 6-9-7-24 @ 1.65v Radioactive / Blackline

1600 6-9-7-24 @ 1.65v

Yeah I have an email in to Mushkin tech support to see if I can get another set but it seems the old ram is EOL and there seems to be a shortage of DDR3 especially mushkin at least for newegg / amazon / ebay couldn't find anything at all...however during my research it seems the new acent line has the same exact CAS timings as the ram im running 676 18 1600mhz think that might be a viable option?


Here is what i was looking at:
