mobo - RAM compatibility

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, First time builder here...


been reading a lot of reviews lately and there seems to be some contreversy out there about wether the chipset matters wen buying RAM...

Im getting the Asus Extreme IV Maximus board and 3 x 2Gb Corsair Dominator GT 1600Mhz RAM....


As far as other OCN threads go there is no issue here but the world of WWW. seems to have a different opinion that the p67 does not go with this RAM...


I always just thought it was DDR2 boards with DDr2 RAM... DDR3 with DDR3...


Someone please clarify...

what's your version of RAM, 2.1 or 7.1? the old hyper has comparability problem with P67, version 7.1 is fine
