Can you post the characteristics for both your RAM kits and MB? Are you overclocking? Please post more info for your sig before continuing.
If they have the same voltage and close enough timings they should work with timings of the slower RAM kit but you might have stability issues.
If your MB is dual channel you would have to match the ram kits with the matching memory banks.

I have used different DDR ram kits on a stock clocked AMD S939 MB with no problem.

Your links don't pinpoint your exact kit, but from what I see, too different voltages. 1.5V or 1.35V for the Corsair and 1.6V or 1.65V for the Kingston.
You would have to run either or both kits out of spec, don't think it will harm them but stability would be hurt.
I recommend to try finding similar kits to install.
I have tried 1.75v DDR3 ram kits from a x48 board on a x58 board at 1.65v and it would fail, but 1.65 kit from x58 on a x48 1.65v work fine.

You could try on your own risk.
You would have to turn from auto to custom, anything memory related in BIOS (voltage, speed, timings, etc.), and setting the lowest voltage of your kit with relaxed timings to see if it works.
And when you find some settings that work you would have to test for stability too.

My opinion, too much work, too little benefit.
