Default compatible ram?

Hello all,

I am looking to add 6gb more ram to my computer, I currently have discontinued OCZ gold sticks, and I was wondering what other ram I could add to my rig without risking an unstable system.

Current - OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G1600LV6GK
Mobo: - GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

This RAM should work fine.
Same latency, speed, and voltage.
You may have to adjust something in your BIOS, but it should be compatible.

Build to be updated, a reminder to myself.
