Hi,

I have decided to buy Asus H87 Plus motherboard and pair it with i7 4770 (non-k). Motherboard only supports upto 1600Mhz ram.

I am from India. Currently 2133 Mhz ram is available for less price than 1600 ram. The price difference is around Rs.800 weird? (approx $13)

So whether 2133 Mhz Ram will work on 1600 Mhz only compatible motherboard?

My current rig is very old.. so i am buying completely a new rig.

Please help!

You could run the ram at 1600Mhz if it doesn't support it.

there are three factors that define a memory module price. speed-cache latency(cl)-voltage. the lower the cl the better so i supposse it will have really high cl. your goal is 1600mhz- 1.5v- cl9-10 if you cant find such module in acceptable price you can manually set 1600 and lower timmings in order to be operational

Thanks Chris. I really dont know about the 3 factors before.
I have just checked it. I think you are correct
1600 mhz has - 9-9-9-24 CAS Latency
2133 has - 11-11-11-27 CAS Latency

So i have decided to go with 1600 itself..THANKS
