So I bought Kingston DDR3-2133Mhz RAM for my Biostar TA970 today. I am gather all the parts for my pc today. The Biostar TA970 only supports 2000Mhz (OC) Ram. Is there a way to make the ram slower so it will work with the motherboard? or will the motherboard automatically make the RAm slower so that it works with the motherboard.

The motherboard should slow the RAM down to speeds it can work at.

When you install it, it will probably default to 1333MHz. Boot to BIOS, set your RAM speed at 2000, then exit to normal boot. Should work fine.
