My 775 socket mobo has ddr3.. can i use ram desgined for 1155 socket? - Page 3

Thread Starter 
I dont really want to overclock just yet until i get my rig built in september so if i put 1600mhz into my board which is rated at 1333mhz and has an fsb of 1333.

will it just run at 1333mhz? Sorry about the questions. cant really afford to get the wrong thing.

edit that is without touching them at all. I got a new videocard and all i want to do is play.. dont really wanna mess around. just plug and play basically. what would 1600mhz do if that was the case

Yes. there are JEDEC settings that it should abide by, automatically. In fact, a lot of 1600 sets are really 1333 sets that can achieve the higher rating with predetermined voltages and timings.

I think my ram would run at 1066 when i put it in but ill overclock the fsb and get it up to about 1333mhz on the ram and ill be happy with that. Its in prep for ym new computer anyway

If you run CPUZ, you'll see what the JEDEC says for the different bandwidths. You can run 1066 with either with no issues.

I wouldn't worry too much about OCing RAM. The difference between 1333 and 1600 MHz is minimal.

IDK, I've seen noticeable increases with Windows loading times and such. But I agree as long as he can tweak his timings, effectively matching the performance from the higher bandwidth. It all depends on the application. SuperPi is a good indication.

Yeah im just over thinking now. Ill need to wait till i get home with my ripjaws tomorrow before anything else i reckon. Such a shame having a brand new unused evga 560ti just sitting there frown.gif

Really? I overclocked my RAM and didn't notice a difference so I set the to stock. Time to do a benchmark!
