    Yes, as your model can use 2133/2400 MHz RAM, I don't think you will have any issues using both together.

    Frequency is not a problem, but latency can be. Sometimes when adding a RAM stick it might not be able to work at the same latency as the main RAM, which will prevent the system from booting. 
    Always post the following characterisitcs of the device:
    -Model number
    -Part number(not required, but helpful)
    -Operating system

    Helios 300 and Nitro 5 users DO NOT update the BIOS to version 1.22 if you don't want the keyboard's backlight to turn off after 30 seconds even when the device is plugged in.
