Not entirely true, depends on whether the IMC disagrees or not. Mine is quite happily running with the ram at 1600 MHz without upping the HT, and only upping the multi for the CPU and manually setting the ram at 1600 MHz,

In subwoffer's case as mentioned previously I doubt that it will run that speed just from it being 4 sticks instead of 2.

i mean, windows had enough of 4 GB to run smoothly games, win itself and multitasking wasnt that bad, now when i got 16 im not really sure what ive done ..*stupid*\
Sounds like upgrading to more RAM was just a waste then...If you don't see the difference, what was the point? I don't think "most" people benefit at all from having more than 4GB of RAM. The only thing that I do which uses more than 4GB of RAM is run concurrent virtual machines.

You can get an idea of the difference between the two here,

Then there is this as well,

[H]ard|Forum - View Single Post - does AMD Phenom II X6 1090T support memory above 1333MHz?

which I just tested on mine using Everest's built in memory tests (forgot to do the copy while at 2000 on the NB),

Also forgot to run winsat mem while at 2000 but it was around 15000 MB/s, and after bumping the NB to 2400 got this,

I think most of us did the OC without touching the HT/ Cpu multiplyer and ram adjustment to 1600mhz That's how i got my OC

Stormy this just means you all are good teachers

Agree

This is a known AMD IMC issue.
It seems to work at 1600MHz and above for some but, quite a few others can't get past 1333MHz.

Thanks for the info and links, have been looking for a good explanation and work around for this.

This will be great for the OC'ers and Enthusiasts, may be a bit difficult for the average user.
