Yes. Any RAM that is not exactly the same will put extra load on the memory controller on the CPU. The issue though is how much extra load it will put onto the CPU. If the RAM is extremely close together in terms of specifications, then the amount of load that is added is reduced, but load is still added.

I have two different ram kits. 1 is a 2000mhz ram kit at 9-9-9-28 1T and the other is the same except the timings are 9-10-9-28 and it is 1.65v VS. 1.6v.

Even though I have them both clocked at 1600mhz at 8-8-8-20-1T at 1.5v I still have to add some extra CPU voltage to get my CPU up to 4.9ghz.

How about if you buy two kits of the same 2x8gb to make a 32gb kit?

Would love to buy just one extra 4 gig module but they don't sell them.
I had no idea you could clock a 1333 so high that's interesting and I would be up for the challenge, was it a 1.5v? and did they get very hot, because I think already I will have to modify the heat spreader/ripjaw on one of the modules so it can sit under the push fan on my hyper 212.

I used 1.6V and no heat isnt an issue. My ram has less surface area than yours does and mine doesn't even get warm. Also, G.skill warranty wont void from overclocking which is awesome.
