RAM Compability Question

I will build a new tower soon but something confuses me..
These are the 3 main parts :

CPU: i5 2500k

MB: Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3

RAM: G.SKILL F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM 8GB 1600mhz

So can this ram run with the i5? cuz i5 supports 1333mhz..
if yes, whats the trick to make it work?

sorry for the repost but i couldnt find a good answer..

Thanks :)

  1. Yes they fit. Go in BIOS and enable the XMP profile for the memory and set the frequency at 1600Mhz , save and quit. Its all done.
