Can I use different ram of different frequency on my rig?

Currently I have 8gb geil 1333 sticks(2x4gb)

There are 2 slots left on my mobo so I was thinking of putting 2 corsair vengeance 1600 4gb sticks in it.

My question is will that configuration work?

I overclock my cpu and I use 200blck and 18 multipliter. So having 1600mhz ram will benefit that overclock configuration. Currently I underclock my ram to 1222 to match the cpu clock speeds. So can I leave all 4 ram sticks for a 16gb configuration?

  1. there's no reason to underclock your current memory, and almost no one needs 16GB. 8 is more than plenty. Save your money.

    so i shouldnt add 8gb more to my current 8gb ram?? i initially bought 8gb of corsair (moderate numbers) but then decided to get samsung, as the clocking #s are better. anyone want 8gb of corsair for $40?? lol.
