    Officially no, typically most systems will only officially support what intel states it will support.

    That being said I have had no issue running 2133Mhz on any of my 4th gen platforms and I believe @Mr. Fox ran similar memory in his m18x r2 at one point

    It's working on my M17x R4, you need an ivy bridge CPU and a good IMC (not all cpu can handle these memory frequency), on sandy bridge it will be limited at 1866MHz memory.
