Hello,
Is it not good to have too higher memory then the motherboard standard. My mobo standard is 1333 ddr3 and the ram im currently looking at is 1600 ddr3?
Thanks ahead of time

Without knowing what motherboard you have, we can not really answer your question.

Most modern motherboard support memory speeds of at least 1600 (overclocking to reach this might be needed), and that is probably what you have as well.
If your motherboard does not support speeds above 1333 in any way, the ram would simply just be set to run at 1333, it would run, just not at its optimal timings.
