Compatibility Of Corsair DDR3 4GB Desktop RAM (CMZ4GX3M1A11600C9)

Iam planning to buy AMD FX 6300 CPU with Gigabyte Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 Motherboard.
my question is since this mobo has support for Ram 1333(O.C) MHz will it support cosair vengeance 4 GB Ram which has frequency of 1600 MHz .
Another question is I have just purchased Corsair CX 430 PSU which has 24 pin ATX plus 8 Pin ,which is fine with this Gigabyte Mobo
'what about motherboards which have only 24+4 Pins ATX power ,Will Corsair work on them too or will it require some modifications?
Please help & advise

  2. Their power supplies ship with an 8-pin connector that splits in half. Use half of this connector for the 4-pin EPS/ATX 12v connector on your motherboard

    The manual lists optional memory clock settings as:
    x6.66 for 1333MHz memory
    x8.00 for 1600MHz memory
