Hello,

I got GA-H110M-S2H, i5 6600, GTX 1050Ti and 1 Module of 8GB 2133Mhz DDR4 HyperX. I have a question about my Ram. Will I get better performance if I replace ram with 2 Modules of 4GB 2133Mhz DDR4 HyperX? I have seen that in COD MW for example I got some freeze spikes but there are not many, it is still playable.

Thanks for your time, appreciate your help.

Yeah it will help a bit, allowing transfer rates between cpu and ram be doubled. Whether it fixes your issue would be a guess. If you can help it, 2x 8GB would be better.
I have one more question,excuse me, but I can't find any 2x4 2133Mhz DDR4 Modules. If I place 2 Modules of 4GB Hyper X 2666Mhz will it still boot?
 
Even if you get a RAM faster than your motherboard supports, it will just run at the supported speed.

In this case I would look around a bit about finding a couple of inexpensive 2x8GB. Wouldn't worry about speed of the matched kit so much as I would were you on AMD.
