If it's not the correct DIMM size, it will not fit. If it's lets say ddr3 1666 and you have a ddr3 1333 already installed it will run at 1333. The lists provided by mobos are ones that have been tested on that mobo and they basically gaurantee it will work unless there is something wrong with the ram.

where are you reading "533mhz" from? It's dual channel so as long as you have the ram in the same colored slots (one in both the green or black slots) it will run. AS for the 3rd stick you can install it but you disable dual channel and just run it normally.

If you're using cpuz or some other software and it says "533mhz" that's showing the dram speed, really your ram is running at 1066mhz. You would need to go into your bios and change either the XMP file to a 1333 or 1666 file or manually change it. And from what you are saying, please read up on how to do it with your specific motherboard, and don't try it unless you have a clear understanding.
