My pair has 2x 180 in one chassis, and 2x 225 in the other.  The OS detects
each pair at the correct speeds.  I haven't had any problems, and I did use
the O200s for intensive work for a couple months after upgrading to the 225s.

The only problem I can remember pertained to firmware, and even that's misty.
I would make sure they're both on the same revision, just to be safe.
