Hey guys my motherboard (Asrock Z87e) says its rated for 1333 and 1600mhz RAM. By also says 1866 (OC), 2133 (OC), 2400(OC), 2800(OC).

I am guessing this mean the mobo can support overclocked ram up to 2800mhz is this correct? I don't know much about computers does this mean if I put it 1600mhz ram I would be able to overclock it that much!? Seems a bit high. I can buy corsair vengeance 8gb 1600 for $69.99 or rip jaws sniper series 2133 for $70.99 can my mobo use the rip jaws? Pease explains to me hoe over locking ram works? Thank you!

If you put the 1600MHz in then you can't oc it to 2800MHz. The ram like 1866mhz (OC) means you install the 1866MHz then in the bios set to XMP mode or manual set to 1866MHZ.
So if you buy the 2133Mhz RAM that is good, you can use it for the 2133MHz or maybe OC to 2400MHz too.
For how to OC the RAM, you can google " how to OC RAM ". You should find all what you want.
