  1. Yes, they will throttle down to 1600hz and must be placed in opposing banks, but there is also a chance that the RAM will not work together as they have not been validated together at the factory.
  2. Those kits have different voltages according to my Google searches (1.65V for the 1600 kit and 1.5V for the 1866 kit). I would not mix them if I was you. I don't know if it's common, but the one time when I mixed two kits of different voltages, my lower voltage kit got fried.
  3. Ooops, didnt check the voltages, that is one place where they should match as well. Just buy a single set 4x4gb if you want 16gb of RAM.
