The ram you have chosen should perform quite nicely and if you really like the colour and can afford to upgrade why not.

Samsung Green, fantastic ram and overclocks nice and easy and at low voltage.

I paid £89.00 for 4x4GB and running it at 1.4v 1866mhz but it'll go much higher with a little more juice

the ram is fine, but if you want to do so, you could sell them cheap on ebay and get some cash for them, i always end up with a lot of computers parts over my house <_<, no kidding i got this disks around my desk right now :

if you think thats old you wont believe what i hide on this desk LOL, ill stay with that ram until i could resell it, so it doesnt just lay around

think you might find a 1.5volt kit.. the 1.65 will run very well (I have the red 2133 X kit)
but seem to get app flakes, subbed corsair plat doms (2133 @1.5) and no issues. re-timed
the G.Skills with a voltage drop and no issues again, but the timings all had to be
re-caled from 9-11-10-28 @ 1.65v to 14-15-13-35 @ 1.5v which pretty much
washed any gains to the higher speed.. noticed similar with Patriot modules. but
not the corsairs... better bins or processing? dunna know. just my experiences
