Intels website says it only works with 1333 and 1600 mhz, except i have been told otherwise?

The i7 3770 should have no problems, as long as your Motherboard supports 2133Mhz memory.

Yes

From the product page on Newegg

It'll work just fine, albeit unnecessary. 1600 is plenty and you would never notice ANY difference in everyday usage and gaming between 1600 and 2133.

If you're shooting for high benchmark scores, go right ahead. It's a waste otherwise.

The i7 3770 + Asrock Z77 Extreme6 will run your 2133MHz memory just fine.

If you're planning to buy new memory, I too would recommend 1600MHz & save some bucks. :)

If the RAM is great for OC and the mobo supports it and u know how to do it, its doable.

But the performance gain for most applications is next to nothing.

Oh ok, so the performance gain is minimal, except its only $71, and i was spending about that much anyway, so i think i should go with it :)
