Yes, but the h170 motherboard won't allow you to overclock your CPU, and your ram would be immediately downclocked to 2133MHz.

And how could i make it so my ram does not get downclocked?

You would have to choose a motherboard with the z170 chipset.

I'm on mobile so I can't easily look at various boards, but offhand, some of the great choices include the MSI SLI Plus, the Krait Gaming 3X, the Gaming Carbon, and the Asus Z170-A. On the more budget oriented side are the Pro4, the HD3, and the PC Mate
