Mixing RAM question

I have a CPU that says it supports up to DDR4 2400.

The MB says it supports up to 2400.

I have DDR4 2400 RAM in it already.

I ordered more RAM but received the wrong kind, might be unable to return it.

Can I use DDR4 2666 RAM with the DDR4 2400 RAM?

I understand the 2666 would run at 2400 speed if it does work.

    The 2666 will work, but it will only run at 2400

    Thanks. Want to make sure as it is over $300 worth of RAM and don't want to actually open it till I'm sure.

    This is running Windows server with virtual machines if that matters.
