I just recieved in today 2x4GB (8GB total) G-Skill Sniper 2133 Memory and was wondering if setting it too that high speed would be wise with only a Core i5-2400. I know it's an older processor and I plan on upgrading to an Ivy Bridge soon, but atm it's all I have to work with. Here is my full system specs. No laughing at the graphics card either, it's also soon to be upgraded. lol

GA-z77x-ud4H Motherboard
Intel Core i5-2400 Processor
8 GB G-Skill 2133 RAM
Nvidia GT420
750W TT Modular PSU
1TB 7200 WD Harddrive

that should be enough to go off of. lol

Only if you overclock the ram. Nothing wrong with it.

Okay, cool. I heard that some processors can only support up to a certain amount of speed for ram. So, my cpu should be able to handle the 2133?
