Generaly speaking, don't mix RAM. Buy in packages for the number of slots you intend to fill. If the part numbers don't match exactly, then chances are the internal workings of the ram don't match, and you can run into instabilities; even if they are identical in terms of specifications - i.e. ECC, timing, capacity, channels, etc.

They should, in theory work as long as theyre both ddr 3200, which it seems they are. Ideally, you want them all to match perfectly for best performance-because all the memory will downclock to match the lowest performing ram, but in most cases they will intermix ok. every once in awhile they wont mix and run stable-but the only way to find out really is to try it.
