Could i underclock the ram to be within spec??

I have a p55 chipset that supports up to 1333mhz ram so i currently have 2x2gb of that.
i want to get 2x4gb sticks. so i'm thinking can i get some ram that is faster than 1333mhz then underclock so i can de-underclock (?) it when i upgrade chipset to support faster ram in the future?

i has core i5 650 OC @4ghz and foxconn p55a board - very shabby.

    You do not have to underclock the ram in order to use it , if you put the 1600mhz ram in then the motherboards bios will automaticly clock it at the default speed which is either 1066mhz or 1333mhz.
