Memory-> Mobo Compatibility

My new motherboard (Asus M4A89GTD PRO) says it supports DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1333/1066 MHz memory. Although it is not listed, could I use 1600 MHz because its inbetween 1333 and 2000, or can I use only the speeds listed?

If you are getting RAM I'd try and get a manufacturer on the ASUS list!
