Well, mixing timings isn't ideal, but it should run ok. The motherboard will probably default timings to the higher latency.

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

Yeah, U can install it, but will not run in dual channel, the dual channel needs that the amount of RAM on both stick be the same.

You need to make sure your Dell system can provide the proper voltage for the memory you are adding. If it cannot provide the proper voltage, then you will not be able to use this memory.
