X260 memory types

I'm awaiting my X260 to arrive, and I want to get a 16GB memory stick to put in it, I understand it takes DDR4-2133 SO-DIMMs. However my local store here doesn't seem to have any 2133 in stock, but has a 2400 in stock...

 

Anyone know if this could be used, if it will simply downclock to the 2133 speed or actually run at 2400?

 

I'm upgrading from a X220, and the memory spec'd for it was DDR3-1333, but when you put DDR3-1600 it actually ran at 1600.

 

Thanks!

Re: X260 memory types

Just an update, I found another store that had the proper memory. Corsair ValueSelect 16GB DDR4-2133 is working great.

Popped in a Samsung 1TB 850Pro and its running great!
