So it says on the MSI 970 motherboard carries DDR3 ram. I noticed in the numbers 2133 it has an OC next to it. I am planning to buy G.Skill Sniper series 2x8 sticks that has DDR3 2133. Is this an okay choice? Should I pick different ram?

There are 5 AMD 970 based Motherboards on this page, . https://www.msi.com/...s/#?chipset=AMD970&chipset_no=956
Which one are you enquiring about?
Please link to the RAM.

Many users have had issues on that MB getting DDR3 2133 to run stable at that speed. It is not on the MB QVL, > https://www.msi.com/...t/TR10_3193.pdf
nor on G.Skill QVL for that MB.> http://www.gskill.co...-2133c10d-16gsr
The difference in performance, on the Desktop, between DDR3 2133 and DDR3 1866 is indistinguishable.
I would go with the Sniper F3-1866C9D-16GSR > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231627
It has been tested on 970s, though not that exact board, > http://www.gskill.co...3-1866c9d-16gsr
The cooler is compatible with the MB socket. > http://www.ocaholic....mid=1237&page=2
You will need to do some research to find out the cooler clearance for the RAM.

Did you select RAM and a cooler yet? An update would be appreciated.
