    Hi there Senpepe,

    Your mobo specs for the RAM
    4 x DIMM, Max. 16 GB, DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066 ECC,Non-ECC,Un-buffered Memory

    I would not do that, the difference is to high, and post links for the RAM or check the voltage, it should be the same.

    And if u are mixing, it is best if the RAM is made by the same RAM maker.

    1333MHz vs 2000MHz is big difference and the mobo may have a problem to balance it.

    I would not do that, but it still may work fine. Its up to the mobo : ))
