Will 1333Mhz RAM work with a 1600Mhz Standard?

I'm looking into a new motherboard, a Z87-GD65 MSI Gaming, and a new processor, a i7-4770k. My old build has 16GB of 1333Mhz DDR3 RAM and my question is, will it be compadible with the 1600Mhz standard until I save up to replace it with 2133Mhz RAM?

    This video pretty much says it all.
