    and just received this 4GB pack from newegg;

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820104166



    I tried to get as close as I could to the specs but there is a difference on CPUZ

    Will I run into any problems? so far its been good..

    My experience of running totally different spec OCZ sticks is that provided you run at the lowest speed or highest timings of any individual stick or pair all is good.

    Yours are so close that I would not envisage any problem at all but if you do then run at the tRAS and tRC settings of the A01LF's to start with.

    Any problem still then just install that set and note all the other settings in bios and compare with the first set then as I said above move to the loosest settings of all

    Okay, currently timing is set to 1333 7-7-7-24 with no issues.. haven't done any serious overclocking like the 1600 9-9-9-24 its rated at, but at 1333 cas7 performance is same as 1600 at 9-9-9-24

    As long as the modules can handle the same speed and timings, they'll do fine.

    Higher speed will almost always trump lower timings, this is shown in all of the memory reviews I've done. However, if you can get the highest "standard level" speed, and then lower the timings, then that's the ideal.
