Will a 2000/2133 work in a interface that asks for 16000mhz? Please elaborate this is where I'm stumped which is why I made the thread

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9S-8GXM - Newegg.com

$10 cheaper and just as good. Get the g.skill you wont regret it.

RAM speeds will run at the speed of the slowest component.

If the memory controller runs at 1600MT/s and you install RAM that is rated for 2133MT/s, the RAM will run at 1600MT/s.

When you install higher rated RAM, you can manually set the memory speed and timings in the BIOS to get the RAM to run at advertised speed.
