I want to upgrade my ram from 4 gigs to 8 and found this nice deal, the seller is willing to sell for only 30 euros!

But thing is, the ram is clocked at 1866mhz but my cpu and motherboard support max 1333mhz.

My question is will it run stable no issues if i put it into my pc?
I assume it will instantly down clock to 1333mhz but i'm not sure so that's why i'm asking.

That motherboard does not support any memory faster than 1333mhz. If you install a 1600mhs or 1866mhz kit, it will potentially be able to be used, but not at speeds faster than 1333mhz. It should automatically default to 1333mhz BUT it might default to 1066mhz and you may have to either enable the memory profile or manually set the memory to 1333mhz. If it automatically clocks the memory at 1333mhz, then you are done, nothing further to do.

It also supports a maximum of 4GB per DIMM slot.
