I am still considering buying another 4gb of some other sort of ddr3 ram so when I do an RMA I will have my system running with 4gig of ram then after getting the new ram I can put that new stick in the 3rd slot and have 12gb of ram.
With the current ram I have assuming an rma will get me a set of identical ram modules would this ram play nice with my current ram? This ram appears to have the same specs ie speed amd cas latency

To be perfecttly honest its best that you don't mix and match different memory brands.
I did that in the past with my old intel builds and the results always had windows or the whole machine getting out of sync.
Just ask your dad for his email address password, tell him all you want is to search for the receipt for tiger directs.
Once you have it give him the ok to change his password on his account and get on with your rma support.

The crucial one would be better for gaming, you'll noticed the difference if you do online matches that are intense.
Lastly if you get ahold of corsair just tell them what happen and what trouble shooting you've done.
If they asked you if you tested this on another machine, go ahead and white lie it and tell them yes.
Even you didn't you know it won't work elsewhere because of the errors it gave you and you provided us.
If they're nice brute of people it should take atleast 2 weeks for them to replace your memory,
