Will a 5700 bottom bracket work with 5600 cranks?

I've done a stupid thing....I won a 5700 bb forgetting that the cranks I'm going to fit are 5600.

Will the bb work with them?
Same English thread and for double as well.
 
FWIW. I believe that ALL Shimano [COLOR=FF0000]Hollowtech II[/COLOR] cranks have 24mm spindles ... So, it should fit.

Absolutely correct. Same spindle diameter, same bearing depth.

Some people get into trouble mixing FSA and Shimano 24 mm BBs and cranks. Different bearing depths mess up the chain line. Shimano with Shimano, FSA with FSA. At least Shimano had the good sense to stick with just one Hollowtech II standard.
