  1. Yes, while choosing RAM you must look for your CPU and mobo specs to check if they support such speed. If you buy RAM with large speed, it will downclock to speed supported by your motherboard.

    Can you provide CPU and mobo you are looking for? It will be easy to answer.
  2. The cpu is Intel core i3 3220 3.3 ghz and the motherboard is and ASRock B75M-GL
