Sorry I don’t think that will work. You really wont know for certain until you try. But from the owners manual it says this.

Memory modules of different sizes can be mixed within a memory channel

(for example, 2-GB, 8-GB, and 4-GB), but all populated channels must

have identical configurations.

So I would say it will not work. And if it does it will not run at the full potential.

Thanks.
