Will I have a better overclock with my current kits without affecting CPU overclock capability?

They're not the best overclockers but you should still be able to get them to 1866 with reasonably good timings.

Try overclocking your current kit before purchasing the new kit, if you achieve a OC that your happy with then there will be no point buy a new kit.

Buy yourself a couple of these (take your pick biggrin.gif ) and call it the day... http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007611%2050008476%20600006130%20600006069&IsNodeId=1&name=8GB%20%282%20x%204GB%29

Yes...I agree with this, especially with the kit you have.

Thanks. I'm just worried that 4x2GB would pull back my CPU OC capability because of increasing VCCIO to support higher RAM OC.

You won't be increasing VCCIO to a point where it will be impacting OC significantly (if at all). You're running low density dimms, you may not even have to increase VCCIO.

But CAN it stress the Memory Controller because I'm using 4 of these modules?

They are not high density dimms, so no. If they were 8GB dimms then yes that would put stress on the controller.

Oh ok, I didn't know that. For 4GB DIMMs, does it have much stress effect on the IMC?
