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?

  3. Yes, of course !
    The frequency doesn't matter as long as the RAM is DDR3.
    This video pretty much says it all.

    Note that there are some applications that do really benefit from RAM speed.
  4. From MSIs specifications: DDR3 1066/1333/1600/1866*/2000*/2133*/2200*/2400*/2600*/2666*/2800*/3000*(*OC) HMz
