  1. yes the 1600 will still work it will just run at 1333 speeds. Just like you car may have a speed limiter of 200kph doesnt mean you cant drive it slower. Just make sure its on the motherboards compatable list, it may or may not work if its not on the list.
  2. Memory is sold at the highest rated speed it is guaranteed to work at, the motherboard processor combination, or user override, determines the actual speed that the system will run it at.
