Adding 16GB to 8GB?

So I'd like to add an extra 16GB to my PC. Currently I have Corsair Dominator 1600mhz 2x4GB (CL9) and I ordered a Vengeance kit with 2x8GB sticks. The speed and timings should be identical, but is it ok to mix both of them or should I just remove the 8GB I have now and use just the 16GB. I'm using a P8P67 Deluxe B2 stepping (BIOS 2103 I think). The board should support the RAM, I'm just wondering if there's any performance losses by mixing two different sizes.

Why do you want to add more ram anyways? You shouldn't get performance loss, but there's a chance the 8GB sticks will cap at 4GB usable as long as the 4GB sticks are in there.
