So my mobo supports only a 2133mhz ddr4 rams but where I'm gonna buy the ram the 2400mhz is cheaper than the 2133mhz. I suppose the mobo will lock the ram's speed at 2133mhz. Am I right, is there anything I should know about before I buy the 2400mhz ram?

Yes that's possible, the motherboard will work at its maximum. In some mobos you can overclock that!

For the most part use any speed RAM as you want but the speed will be lowered to the slowest piece. Don't forget about timings as well!
