Higher speed memory working with lower speed motherboard?

My question, in its most distilled form: does this memory

work with this motherboard

From reading different articles on Tom's Hardware it seems like memory with a higher speed will simply be recognized as have a lower speed on a motherboard rather than not working at all. Since I don't trust my inference i figured I would ask the question outright.

If this memory doesn't work then I hope someone can recommend the best memory for this motherboard. Thanks a lot!

Also, I'm sorry about the Sub-category, but I didn't know which one to chose.

    Yes it will work, to get the best out of it you will need to set the speeds manually in the bios.
