I'm posting this because I didn't find much regarding confirmed compatibility with G.Skill Ripjaw X memory @ 2133 when I researched.
I found myself in possession of F3-17000 G. Skill memory 2133 cl11 2x4 gigs. The mobo states supported memory 1600, 1800, 1866, 2100, 2400. I stuck it in the a2/b2 as instructed via the manual and loaded into the Bios where I selected one of the XMP profiles and 2133 frequency and it loaded into the os fine, I also ran 20 passes with the mem test diagnostic with no errors at 2133 but, when I started gaming I crashed. I suspect this is more to do with my CPU (fx 8320) stating it supports up to 1866. I went back into the bios and selected 1866 for the frequency and have had no issues since. If I were to purchase new volatile memory I'd go with either the same speed with lower latency and run it at 1866 or something with low frequency advertised as 1866 bandwidth. I'm enjoying the current performance though, tbh.
I've ran this build with 1 crucial ballistic 8gig stick (1600cl9) alone, then paired with a mismatched 8 gig stick of Samsung memory (1600cl11), and now with the above memory with no issues.
