Intel z68db can i run 1600 memory

Hey guys can you help me out, can i put 2x4GB 1600 mhz ram in an intel z68db motherboard? will it not work or will the ram jump down to 1333 ?
Intel website says the mobo supports 1066/1333Mhz. Many Thanks.. :D

  1. It depends on the BIOS. Does the BIOS allow you to set different speeds for your RAM?

    I'm looking to build a new computer, so I dont know about the bios, is there any way to check without going directly into the bios ?

    I just checked newegg, there is an z68BC which says
    Memory Standard: DDR3 1600/1333/1066

    while z68DB says
    Memory Standard: DDR3 1333/1066

    so will it work ? :)

    Im in India there is very little stock over here. Would have preferred an Asus but forced to go with intel mobo. :(
