Yes it will, the faster ram will automatically be set to run at the lower ram specs.

If you want to burn your mobo, go ahead. JK.
Just make sure both kits have same settings set.
Also when having more ram's into mobo you need more voltage on NB if you want to overclock.

not overclocking, its just for my media center, which on the rare occasion I will play games like League of Legends or Fallout on. Just seemed like such a waste to have 4 gigs of ram on the shelf when I could have 8gigs in my media center. Purely overkill.
