If you are looking for plain old reliable ram that you can't overclock and have a mediocre benchmark, these are fine.

ram came without heat spreaders since it was invented many many many years ago. Heat spreaders are a new thing companies do to make their product look cool

Heat spreaders are more for "performance" RAM and can serve a purpose if you overclock, but if you just want plain old RAM, Mushkin makes a good product.

Well... they're generic, all I can say. No heatspreaders necessary. Expect little OC headroom.
If you don't mind rebates here's a cheaper DDR3-1600 kit

Will these work alongside Mushkin 1333's, though?

If your looking to add on to what you already have, just stick with 2 more sticks of the mushkin 1333. The 1600 sticks will have to downclock if you run it with 2 1333 sticks.

Probably downclocked to the 1333Mhz speed... in which case, yeah, you're better off getting the Mushkin kit you linked in the OP as they are cheap before rebate price
Better yet, leverage this deal on 2x2GB [generic 1333] RAM for $26. It's not mushkin, but with all brands having lifetime warranty anyway and 1333 CL9 kits featuring similar overall quality, why does it matter? It's cheaper than the rest and it will work with your current kit at stock settings.

They should do 8-8-8-24 1T @ 1600MHz. Mine do at least...
I also had them at 7-7-7-24 2T @ 1333MHZ but not stable enough to post every time.
