Well, you will never gain the speed of your OCZ, as it is 2000, while the rest are 1600 and 1333. And your timing are all over the place. If I were you, I would get 8GB (2 x 4GB) all new RAM. To ensure 100% compatibility. Also to keep it in dual channel.

I have these in the system I'm using now: - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBXL

Thanks for the response I'm not really looking to spend that much money on RAM right now (less than 30 bucks). Like I said, I just would like some extra memory. I'm not too worried that these sticks wont be as fast as my OCZ, i just care if they will work with my motherboard and current RAM with zero problems.
