RAM compatibility question

Yes hello here is my build

-AMD FX-8350 Vishera 4.0GHz AM3+ socket processor

-ASUS R9270X 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card x2

-ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z AM3+ 990FX Gaming Motherboard

-AMD Radeon RG2133 Gamer Series 16GB RAM (4 DIMMS)

- SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ 250GB SSD

-Western Digital 1TB 7200 RPM HDD

-Cooler Master HAF X Full Tower Case.

-PSU CORSAIR | RM1000 R

-Cooler Master Seidon 120M Closed Loop Water CPU Cooler.

-Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Silver Thermal Compound.

-ASUS DRW 24X DVD Burner Optical Drive

-Windows 7 Home Premium 64 octet

my question is will the memory I purchased and installed already work when I power on my system for the first time? the ram is tested to run 10-11-11-30 frequency 2133, however, it is not listed in 1866 or 2133 in my motherboard manual, does this mean it will not be recognised?.

(I already have the memory seated) do I need to unseat these modules and purchase new ones?

Thanks.

    If it didn't support the RAM speed, I think it would down clock it to a supported RAM speed, or you have to that (reset the BIOS, clear the CMOS). But your motherboard does support 2133 RAM

    Alright so, basically just because its not in the manual doesnt mean it wont support the modules, it will just run it at stock frequences correct?
