So for this question let's just consider these 3 sticks were bought as one 3x2gb kit:

Having one 3x4gb (actual)kit and one 3x2gb kit, I should be fine as long as I set everything according to the lowest timings and speeds, correct?
usually yes but some sticks just dont play well with others...i had a set of g skill sniper 1866 2 x 4gb 9-10-9-28 1.5v (default)that would not play well with my g skill ripjaws 2133 9-10-9-28 1.6v (default) even with the timings loosened and the voltages set to 1.7v both kits at 1866 so its not always a gaurantee even when they are perfect matches (or very close in my case)
