You can overclock the RAM in BIOS to run at whatever speed it is rated at. But very little performance gain is achieved going from 1333MHZ to 1600MHZ.

Mmmm.... thanks! but it seems like my question didn't mean what i want.
It's like; can I run an i3 2100 (1333MHz as Intel shows) with a original PC3 12800(1600MHz) clocked RAM?

Yes. The RAM freq will default to 1333MHZ.
