Probably not, but you'll just have to try it. Crucial guarantees it's ram to work if you use their configurator software. I've mixed mac pro ram with regular desktop; one was ecc and the other was non-ecc. You won't be able to mix any registered with non registered ram; Registered ram is strictly for server boards, except for a few newer Intel desktop boards with certain i5 and i7 cpus, which may run it with the error correction function disabled.

Both ram kits have the same timings and both ddr3 1333; same manufacterer the only diffrence is the PC3-10600 / PC3-10666 :/
