Question Ram and Motherboard Compatibility???

Ok so i purchased a motherboard for 89.99 that supports many different types of ram and it lists all the types of ram and the highest it list compatibility with is 2100, i cant even find 2100 ram but i can find 2133 ram series (which is PC317000), I actually bought 8gb of it in a sale for a steal of a price and I havn't gotten it in the mail yet but I was wondering if the 2133 ram will work on the board? I have a link to the motherboard below...

Newegg.com - ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard and the ram here :
Newegg.com - G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL11D-8GBSR

Agreed, it should work. If it doesn't, then you may need to manually adjust it in BIOS.
Build to be updated, a reminder to myself.
