CPU/RAM Drifting?...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Could someone please clarify something for me? I have a 1090t and 2x4gb G.Skill RAM 9-9-9-24-2T at a native 1600mhz. I heard that RAM above 1333mhz can cause "drifting" and damage my CPU. Is that true? What is "drifting"? I have never heard of that before. Thanks to all!

Don't worry about it. I run the smaller version 2x2, for nearly 19 months no issue

I have no idea what your talking about.. are you able to explain this term further? because perhaps it's known under a different name

I wish I could. This is a term the amd rep mentioned while I was setting up my cpu rma. I have no idea what it means. Though, I am pretty site this is not what caused my cpu to bite the dust.

I remember reading that C3 revs of Phenom II's had IMCs that were only capable of using 1333 DDR3. I've been using 1600 DDR3 for a few months now without a hiccup.

Maybe he had just watched the fast and the furious and wanted to drift.

Lol at that. Thanks, all for your insight.
