Alright so a buddy of mine bought a 8gb (2x4gb) set of Vengeance Memory and got a free set of Patriot G2 8gb (2x4) memory for free with his motherboard purchase.

The question is, could he possibly use both sets together in his computer?

Specs are:

Vengeance :
DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
• Timing 8-8-8-24
• Cas Latency 8
• Voltage 1.5V

Patriot G2:
DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
• Timing 9-9-9-24
• Cas Latency 9
• Voltage 1.5V

The only thing I could see is the CAS latency being the only issue.

First: It's not recommended to mismatch ram
Second: CAS Latency and timings are different which could cause instability.

I would recommend the Corsair Ram and use the Patriot ram in a different system or sell it.

Overall: Yes, but rather use the Corsair alone.
