If I were in your position, I would keep what I have, try to tighten the timings and command rate, feed it some volts to do so. I wouldn't bother getting the Dominator C8 set; I have it, and while it's good, I haven't found it to be worth the normal price, plus it isn't likely to go much higher than your current stuff. Save your money, and use what you already have.

at 1333MHz i was able to set timings at 7-7-7-20.. TRC is 34 by default.... should i set it to something else?

I tried tighter timings of 6-6-6-18 but wouldnt boot..... can you suggest other timings i could try to increase my performence and what would the recommended voltage be?

1600 9-9-9 about equals or slightly outperforms 1333 7-7-7; try running at that instead.
Definitely do not even consider buying the Patriot 1333 9-9-9 1.65V kit

Your 6GB memory is not running in proper dual channel hence you may actually be seeing a loss in performance; tossing one of the 2GB kits (if you don't use the extra memory) may be beneficial in performance as you would then be running proper dual channel, and you wouldn't have to buy anything new.

I was running at 1600MHZ 9-9-9-24 1.65V but i had to bring it down to 1333MHZ to be able to raise my NB to 2600. At 1600 memory NB wouldn't pass 2400.

So now im using 1333Mhz 7-7-7-20-trc27 1T, i checked some benchmarks online with my memory and yes 1600 is faster but 1333 7-7-7-20 did perform a bit better in gaming.

Well, those modules should be running on 1.65 volts. You can try taking them up higher. I know the 965 chips can handle 1.9 volts for the RAM voltage, as I used to have some GSkill Pi that required it that high. I would really suggest just 1.7-1.75, check the heat output, and try again. The 965 was also rated for DDR1333, so anything above that is gravy, and technically unsupported. Also, try something like 6-7-7-20, or similar. Getting the CAS latency lower is an overall help. Also, if you're going to push with that motherboard, be really sure it's running cool, and all voltages are stable.....I had one blow up on me.

Gaming does usually prefer lower timings.

i tried 6-7-7-20 and it wouldnt boot even when raising voltage. I tried 1600 again and for some reason it boots just fine at 1600 now... tried to lower the timings to 8-8-8-24 instead of 9-9-9-24... it will boot but will crash at the windows logo... tried even with 1.98V and would still crash. So i went back to 1333 7-7-7-20 cuz i do a lot of gaming.
