The 5.xx indicates they are Hynix chips on those, now to the next part of this.

1) Quite possibly, the one thing you can try if you do use them is to keep them in similar channels so 5.21 in A and the 5.29 in the B channels. But as for issues, maybe. And generally not recommended.

2) As for the chips being the same in the two, depends what your definition of the same is. Manufacture, yes. Beyond that, likely not.

Just be aware that you should expect to see issues so you aren't surprised if they creep up.
