So I am pretty new and not super experienced with quite a bit yet so please forgive me if this is a dumb question. I have an Intel Core i7-6700K Processor so it is only up to 2133 and I was hoping to be able to use 2 GeIL EVO POTENZA 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820144927 with it. Does anyone know if I will have any issues with this and will I have to do anything more than just plug and play? Thanks in advance.

You will likely have to enable the XMP profile in your BIOS to have the sticks run at their rated speeds. But that is a perfectly safe thing to do!

Thank you. In time for me to get it while still on sale also. Perfect.
