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!
