The sticks you posted have identical freq, voltage and timings, all of them (9-9-9-24). No issues there smile.gif

Your choice of kits all feature the same speed, timings and voltage; the same brand/binner as well.  You are unlikely to run into any problems.  It may be worthwhile considering the 2x4GB kit over a 4x2GB setup however because it can be much less stressful on the IMC.

 

You should also reconsider buying on Newegg.ca as you are probably spending $10 more than you should be due to higher overall costs and higher shipping costs.  Don't buy from a retailer that ships from the US.  Buy from a CANADIAN retailer such as NCIX, MemoryExpress or CanadaComputers.

 

Get this kit at MemoryHouse - $39.99 with $2.99 EXPRESS 2-day shipping.  Whereas the Newegg 2x4GB kit would cost well over $55 shipped and take longer to arrive.  Even the 2x2GB kit costs nearly as much and takes longer to arrive.

1N and 2N may have some impact if you're mixing DDR3 RAM - which is not recommended by me because it often does not function without issues. There is no way to know until you try. Mixing DDR3 RAM is always a crapshoot.
