I'm helping a friend build a rig, and I've run into a new issue for me.
We're looking to get one of the following boards:
- ASRock X79 Extreme 6/GB
- ASRock X79 Extreme9
- ASRock Fatal1ty X79 Professional
The first 2 state that their memory standard can go up to an overclocked
2400MHz, the last one an overclocked 2600MHz.
Does that mean that if you put 2400MHz memory in, the board can overclock up to that? Or should you buy the highest regular standard supported (1600 in this case) and overclock up to 2400?
