First of all mixing memory is always a mixed bag of results. They may not work together at all, or they may work together but default to the slowest speed of the slowest memory stick. They may work for a while but cause bsod along the way. You can try them it wont hurt the pc per se, but results are always different. It is always best to buy a matched set and use them together.

If it works it works, if not then no harm done. DDR 4 1.2v ram are able to run at 1.35v so that'll be the voltage to run both at as the 1.35v stick probably wont be stable if set to 1.2v.
oke tnx again, but do I have to put the 1.2 stick to 1.35 by my self or will my moba do this.

Play around with them first at default settings hoping the motherboard auto adjusts. If you're able to boot with the two sticks then test them with memtest making sure there'll be no errors. Boot memtest from a usb stick and do atleast 5 passes. Youtube has tutorial vids if you want to check it out.

If auto settings fail then yeah, will have to manually input settings. Starting with dram voltage then possibly needing to muck around with ram speed and timings.

Actually the Corsair's 3000MHz is xmp at 1.35v, this ram can run at 1.2v at a reduced rate of 2133 and 2400.
well I am back and its working both are running at a speed of 3000 at 1.35 I did a test for around 30 min (I had to go) and there where no errors found.
