Why don't you go on the MB website and download the QVL Qualified Vendors list which will give you all the types of ram usable for that board that would be the best thing to do

You don't want to buy ram that might not run as well because it might not be right for the job or board

MSI Global ? Motherboard - 970A-G46

This says your board supports all ram up to 2133 OC unbuffered 1.5 volts ram

I understand most ram out there is between 1.5 and 1.6

if you are going to run high speed ram im sure it wouldn't hurt since it says ram OC'able to 2133 I haven't seen any ram that fast run at 1.5
