AFAIK most RAMs will run but only at the stock default or at the lower rated speed, i.e. if one stick is 2133 and the other is 3000, they will run at 2133 mhz, its called intel FLEX mode , so you will get 8+8 GB in dual channel mode and the extra 8 GB will work in single channel mode. if it was me, id just get another 8GB stick (same speed, make & model). IDK if your board will support this though.

intel flex mode
