is it okay to mix ram brand/speeds

so i have a set of 2x 8gb 3200mhz hyper x fury

and i have corsair vengence pro rgb 2x 8g 2933mhz i already have it installed and i was wondering if i should take them out for stability problems i dont notice any yet but i wanted to know if it was okay and if there would be any problems going forward

They may have stability problems, they may not. If they're fine they'll just run at the lower speed, in this case 2933 mhz, and the higher cas latency. 

I am NOT a professional and a lot of the time what I'm saying is based on limited knowledge and experience. I'm going to be incorrect at times. 
My build:
CPU: 10700k Oc'd to 5.0 ghz                            GPU: RTX 3070 ventus 2x
Motherboard: Asus z490-v                                Cooler: Deepcool castle ex 120mm
Ram: Team tforce delta 32gb 3200mhz cl16     Case: Phanteks p418r (p360a ripoff) 
PSU: Apevia Prestige 800w

Notes:
Spoiler

To me the 10700k seems pretty underrated. It's a very solid cpu. at 5.0ghz it draws 175-185w under full load. the Asus z490-v is a sh*t teir motherboard, I wouldn't recommend it for anything past a 10600k for light oc's only. Tforce ram is pretty but cpu cooler clearance can be an issue on them, so beware. the RTX 3070 is obviously a great card, but the ventus 2x is just horrible. Don't buy it, not now, not ever. It's flimsy af, you can't increase the stock power limit, the cooler is worse than the one on the 3070FE. If it's a choice between this and nothing, choose nothing. The deepcool castle ex 120mm isn't really on sale outside of prebuilts, but it's a nice pretty cooler, gets my 10700k up to 96c after a prime95 cpu test for 15 minutes. The p418r is basically what it looks like. P360a, slap a few cyberpowerpc logos on it, and you're golden. The Apevia Prestige 800w is bad, but not terrible. Runs respectably quiet and isn't a bomb. More than a lot of PSU's in prebuilts can claim.

It can cause issues, but usually, if the system boots, you should be fine. You still might be better off with only one set of RAM so you can take advantage of the higher speeds.

That's when I'd expect some issues, since you're overclocking one of your memory kits beyond what it's rated for. I'd run memtest64 for a couple hours before leaving both kits of memory in the system, but if it passes, leave it and call it a day.

Unless the sticks are defective, it usually doesn't cause any problems. If you're forcing them to operate as dual channel and overclock them, that's when issues may arise.
