Ditch the 4gb kit, Less sticks, better overclocking. Much better to have 2x 4GB , I would just deal with the slightly slower timings.

Different timings & voltages = disaster incoming, or at least it's possible.  You may be able to run the 4GB kit at the 8GB kit settings stable though.

idk man, i dont want to bother ocing it manually, as im running the oc genie, dont have time for messing with the pc for a long period of time due to work / side jobs / motorcycle broke..

so i have to just eat it up and sell the 4gb kit somehow for at least 25 bucks or what not xD

it will i gues buddy the timmings are a bit different CL7 and the other is CL9 so u might have sacrifice on abit of performance and underclock or loosen the current RAM timing
