Default question about CMD16GX3M2A2133C9

Hi guys,

I'm new here and I'm looking for a confirmation regarding the above memory kit (CMD16GX3M2A2133C9).

I'm assembling a new gaming PC, I've the mb ASUS Maximus VII Hero and I would buy an Intel i7 CPU.
Looking at the mb specs I see that the stability and compability of memory modules with memory frequency higher than 2133 MHz depend on CPU's capabilities and other installed devices.

My question is simple. Could I use the above Corsair memory or should I use a memory with lower frequency? Is the memory kit CMD16GX3M2A2133C9 suitable for my mb with an Intel Core i7 processor?
How the CPU influences the choice of memory in this case?

Thank you very much in advance for your replies.

Yes, that kit is compatible with your MB. Any Intel 4th gen i7 CPU should be able run memory at 2133Mhz. All you need to do is enable XMP in BIOS and that should take care of it.
