  1. Well, your Kingston Ram is a slower speed than the new Team ram. Your system is going to have to run at the slower of the two (667) instead of the faster 800 Mhz. When you install two different speeds, your PC will have to run at the lower speed normal circumstances. Also, it advised not to "mix and max" memory kits,as that can cause problems as well. However, looking at the JEDEC 333(667 DDR) settings, your kits both use the same memory timings. All that said, this isn't going to help you in your overclocking. The only way it would help would be IF your ram was holding you back, though I still think it's you lack of CPU voltage as you can't increase it. To use your new ram at the faster speed (800 Mhz), you would have to remove your old ram leaving you back to 2GB total vs 4GB. Also, do you have the ram sticks on in both of the BLUE slots, or both of the BLACK slots? You typically wanted to run 2 sticks in pairs for dual channel mode, but again since your using 2 different modules, they may not work together.

  3. Just trying to help. If you want to OC your CPU further, I think you'll need a different, more OC friendly motherboard. However, it would probably not be worth the cost unless you got it on the cheap, as that money would be better served towards a future upgrade with modern parts.
