Non 512e and 512e drives in the same RAID

Okay simple question, can you mix 512e and non 512e drives in the same raid? I have a raid full of non 512e drives(761477-b21), one of the drives in said raid went bad and I have a like drive (speed and cacpacity, one is 6g and one is 12g) that is 512e (765259-b21).   What I would like to do is use the 512e drives in to the raid with the non 512e drive that are still healthy.  If it would work but is not recomended i would also love to know more about why this is the case.

The box is a Gen9 DL380 with a 440AR. 

Thanks in advance for your help!
