Default RAM Questions

Hi Hardware Canucks. this is my first post.

just a quick question, as i am not a ram expert.

will this ram : Dominator TR3X6G1600C7D 6GB DDR3 3X2GB DDR3-1600 CL 7-7-7-20 (i have this right now)

work well with this : Dominator TR3X6G1600C8D 6GB DDR3 3X2GB DDR3-1600 CL 8-8-8-24

will this work as well : XMS3 Dominator 6GB DDR3 3X2GB DDR3-1600 CL 7-8-7-20
I wanted to add more memory into my computer as i need it for school. But i am not sure which can i get as the ram i have right now is discontinued.

Is theres any other Ram out there that i can use ? besides the the 2nd one ?

Thank You.

btw, this is my motherboard,

You should be okay with either choice really, what will end up happening is all your RAM will run at the slowest speed of the different modules if I remember correctly.

I would go with the TR3X. It seems to be the closest match. This will be important if you are overclocking.
