New RAM. A couple of questions.

I saw that this memory was on my motherboard memory list on the site. I recently ordered this memory and have a few questions about it (http://www.corsair.com/us/dominator-platinum-with-corsa...). How would I go about configuring my computer for this RAM? Simply by going into the bios and changing the speeds from anywhere between 1333 and 2133? How about the latency? How would I be able to see that it is unstable? What would I need to change it to if it is unstable? What are some RAM specialized monitoring programs I could use to keep eyes on them? Is there any downside or reason I should cancel the order or is this a good buy? Thank you for those that take the time.

(edit) I'm currently running in single channel but am thinking about purchasing some high quality for upgrades down the road as well as to get the most out of my RAM areas to begin with. Sorry for not putting system info I joined yesterday and haven't made the template until now.

Install the sticks, boot to BIOS, enable XMP and select profile 1, save, exit and boot to Win, if BIOS is ready for them should be good to go, if not give me a shout and we'll set them up
