I have had 2 sticks of corsair ballistic 8gb ram. (C)
Its not enough for my work, so I bought 2 Gskill ripjaws 8gb(G) (same speed and same size)
Motherboard supports dual channel ram A A B B
Right now I have [C][no][C][no]

Do I go with [C][G][C][G]
Or [C][C][G][G]
For optimal performance?

Mixing RAM is not ideal, it will work at the stock speeds but needs many fine tuning to reach some speeds as you need to maintain the worst denominator in the timings between the two sets.
[C][G][C][G] is the ideal setup as it at least segments different sticks in two separate channels.
