PowerEdge R410 compatible with Kingston KVR16E11K3/12?

Subject line says it all... almost! I have an R410 with just 2GB RAM on 2 1GB 1Rx8x72 UBE, as Dell part G481D. System has a single CPU as Xeon E5520.

Some time ago I mistakenly ordered ECC UDIMMs for a desktop system. I have this Kingston KVR16E11K3/12 kit, with 3x4GB pieces of RAM. 

Label says it's 12800 CL11 ECC 240-pin UDIMM. 

Each UDIMM label has the following: 4GB 2Rx8 PC3-12800E - 11 - 10 - E3

I can't find any specific confirmation this particular RAM is workable, but based on what I can interpret from the documentation it appears that this "should" work, or at least 2 sticks of this should.

Any recommendations? If I just plug it in, and it's not the right type for some reason, will it damage anything or will it instead just beep and refuse to power up?

Yes, you should be able to add the 4GB MEM since they are also UDIMMs. For optimal configuration:

Slots A1, A2 & A3 install 4GB DIMMs. You may add 1GB onto the A4 slot but it may not be optimal.
