Windows 7: ram with diferent frequence?

That's simply mixing different speeds where the faster is slowed down to the slower memory's speed. It still tends to defeat the purpose of adding more but a different speed rather then replacing the slower with the fastest supported.

Often the main problem is mixing types however when people add gaming memory onto a system running value memory and end up having a list of unexplained problems. Note some boards won't even run with performance memory but require standard memory only.

The optimal results are seen when going by the specs in the board's manual and running all the same type and speed and even all the same size depending on what the particular board supports. That will be the universal recommend when consulting any repair shop or tech support.

One other thing I should mention here androidal may be the need to see Windows reactivated if you select a faster memory but by a different brand that what you have in now. That came up when swapping out the OCZ for the Mushkin here right after the first clean install on the new build.

You can easily make a quick call to MS to take care of that if it comes up due to the hardware change. But I did want you to be made aware of that item ahead of time. Here I had simply dumped a second clean install at the time since there wasn't that much on at first.

I and most others here always try to give information on how to do things the proper way; not the best way to do it wrong. Read through the post and make your choice.
