Will these two memories work together?

So I've got this motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
And this is the memory I have currently
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
And this is the memory I'm looking at
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Would they work together even though they are different memory sizes? I matched the voltage latency and speed

Also the motherboard says that it's overclocks 1600 speed ram, does it automatically do that or do I need to change some settings in the bios?

ALSO what are the best forums to learn about overclocking?

There's a good chance they'll work together. It partly depends on how you arrange the memory in the slots. I think the right way is to put one set of memory in channel A and the other set in channel B.

As to the memory speed, that depends on your motherboard. Some will automatically pick up the 1600 MHz speed, others will require you to enter that speed manually in the BIOS.

The overclocking forum here on Tom's is a good place to start learning.

The timing on the kingston hyperx is 9-9-9-27 (as opposed to the adata one being 9-9-9-24) so the motherboard would change the timing to match the kingston ram.

Would that be a big deal? or should I find other ram that matches the timing exactly?
