Thanks, I assumed so about the clock speed I'm not too worried about that as my 3333 kit easily overclocks to 3600 so I think a 3200 could do 3333 at least easily. I was mainly worried about the ram modules being the same being as my kit was discontinued but I assume G Skill uses the same circuit board with different binned ram chips. 

I wouldn't really worry about it. They probably just weren't selling a ton of them and were selling more 3200MHz and/or 3400MHz+ kits and decided it'd be more cost effective to focus on those and new products instead.

Assuming your motherboard has 8 DIMM slots, you should be able to run them both together. You might have to tweak some clock speeds and timings though, and the faster RAM will have to downclock to match the 3200MHz RAM.
