Intel i3 8350k RAM compatibility

Hello, I am in need of new processor and look to buy i3 8350k which means I need motherboard with Z370 chipset if I understood correctly (I currently have H110). I have DDR4 RAM module that works on 2133Mhz, motherboard have support for it but here on intel product website it says on Memory Types DDR4-2400, so is that maximum supported memory clock, or only supported memory clock, and what would happen if I put in my memory of 2133Mhz?

Thank you

If your motherboard supports the i3-8350k with the socket, BIOS, and chipset, then it would run at the slower speed memory of 2133Mhz.

Also, this is your processor: https://ark.intel.com/products/126689/Intel-Core-i3-8350K-Processor-8M-Cache-4_00-GHz Intel® Core™ i3-8350K Processor (8M Cache, 4.00 GHz) Product Specifications

Great thanks, so there is no problem that on the link you sent is stated only DDR4-2400 whilst I have 2133Mhz?

I saw that link before and that's what confused me. Thank you again.

Best regards!

When it lists a processor as supporting a specific speed, this means that the processor has been fully qualified to run at that speed or lower. In your case, this means it is fully qualified to run at either 2133MHz or 2400MHz.
