Unlikely, unless the motherboard has some memory manipulation

Motherboards can be funny with RAM, especially if they are low end.

I mean myself i technically can put DDR3 1600 in my motherboard (this motherboard to be precise: http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4962#ov)

But I cannot go over that speed of ram due to the nature of my motherboard not being higher end.

It is listed at supporting up to DDR3 1600 and probably wont work with higher speed ram

Most (every?) DDR3 RAM module has SPD timings for 1333 MHz. So in case motherboard/CPU wants 1333 MHz memory, it can just check SPD timings from module and adjust settings.

So I see no reason why your motherboard won't support DDR3 memory even it's rated at 2133 MHz.

Random compatibility issues are always possible but memory speed have no affect for them.
