Is there any problem if I use 1600MHz bus RAM in a 1333MHz bus supported motherboard?

I am using GIGABYTE H61M-DS2 Motherboard on my desktop PC. This motherboard supports DDR3 1333Mhz 16GB (8GB in each slot). But now 1333MHz RAM are so rare in my country, so Im using an 8GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM on PC. Although its running very well but I am confused about 2 things- (1) Shall it do any harm to my computer?
(2) Can I use another 8GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM (total 16GB) on my PC?

    Yes, it should work. That board supports up to DDR3 2500 but will downgrade to 1333mhz on all modules above 1333mhz.
