RAM compatibility

hello so I own a pair of corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600MHz 2x4 (8-8-8-24) C8 model 

and I cannot find the c8 model anymore 

if I buy the C9 with (9-9-9-24) and set the timings and voltage exactly the same.. will that be a problem? thnx

Well if it will that new RAM will be able to run CL8 then it will be alright. If not  you can simply increase voltage a bit, that should help to reduce timings to CL8.

In the worst case scenario your CL8 RAM will increase its timings to CL9.

So you should be able to make it work how you want with some time put it.

yeah, your 8-8-8-24 will simply clock down itself to 9-9-9-24. Most likely you won't notice any difference performance wise.
