Wise decision from one who admittedly is not terribly knowledgeable on these things . I have 2400Mhz capable sticks in my Ivy and I run them at 1866Mhz but in all honesty when the machine has defaulted to 1333Mhz at times (Asus feature) I found it really did not make that much difference.

In fact I cannot find any or much evidence for using high clock speeds on the RAM - as an ordinary run of the mill user.

I did a fair bit of research through the G Skill forum before I bought my RAM and that was the general consensus of feeling there and what I base my comments on.

Correct me if i'm wrong but doesn't all/ most ram default to 1333Mhz? I thought that was the standard SDP.

That should be correct all ram defaults at 1333mhz but the CPU memory controller like amd can run native 1866 intel I think is 1600 could be wrong but Overclocking Intel Boards do much better and have more memory options

Well you learn something new every day I had no idea that this was the case to be absolutely honest


I was just supposing that it was the Asus board. I have not had a board yet that can support over 1333Mhz so that makes it that much clearer now.

Ivy Bridge and Bulldozer (AM3+) default to 1600, if at least 1600 ram is installed.

RAM

Yes most Ram is 1333. Even when we buy 1600 or whatever it's actually 1333 by JEDEC standard, the merely add the timings to the profile (xmp) and sell it as 1600.

And thanks for the link for the other coolers guys




This is my ram shown in CPU-Z it's 1333 with an 1600 XMP profile.

Dude, on your second pic I am seeing DRAM FREQ as 800.0 Mhz x2=1600 You can always go into the bios and see what your ram is running. Mines is running 1600, says so in BIOS plus I am running a AMD FX-6100 CPU, which does just fine with 1600Mhz ram. You can also check your mobo specification page, it tells you what your mobo can support. For example, on my mobo page it says *Support for DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1866/1600/1333/1066 MHz memory modules (Note 2)*

*(Note 2) To support a DDR3 1866 MHz (and above) memory, you must install an AMD AM3+ CPU first.*
