For example, Ivy bridge cpu specify to have 1333/1600 mhz memory. Can I install a ram with only a maximum speed of 1066mhz?
I know that 1600mhz memory is very cheap right now, but I just wanted to know ;) .

I'm not an expert, but I see no reason why it couldn't. With certain motherboards you can go higher than 1600 as well. This is just speculation.
