Memory upgrade information

Dual channel memory architecture
Two DDR4 UDIMM (288-pin) sockets
Supports up to PC4-17000 (DRR4-2133)
I already have a 4gb memory of the same architecture as above.
I am thinking of upgrading the memory to 8gb, so should i get a 2400 mhz ram or 2133 mhz ram? Strangely in my country 2400mhz is much cheaper than 2133.
If i add 2400 will it affect the performance?
Which one should i buy for a better performance 2133 or 2400?
 
2400mhz ram module can work at 2133mhz also.

But there may be a problem with mixing different modules of ram, that are not from the same kit.
Best option is to buy 2x4GB 2400mhz ram in a kit.
4GB 2133mhz + 4GB 2400mhz may work, but also you may encounter compatibility problems. It may be necessary to adjust ram settings manually in bios for it to be stable.

So is it better to buy a 2133mhz instead of 2400mhz, since my mb only supports upto 2133mhz?
