I've got 4gb of ddr3 @1333MHz 2x2 Kingston KVR1333D3N9/2G .

Thing is... I want to put another 2gb of Kingston HyperX KHX1333C7D3/2G.

Will there be any compatibility issue? :)

its not good to mix memory models, some people even say it can shut down a whole channel if the sticks are different.

the biggest problem you might have is what happened to me. i had some mixed ram and the voltages were different, one day i reset my bios and it gave all three chips 1.8v but the third was a 1.2v stick...boom..blew that stick up

Hmm... the actual memory runs at 1.58v and the hyperX at 1.7v

LE: some ppl said that HyperX will run the same as the normal memory CL9 with 1.58v :D
