Help me choose, 2133mhz or 1600mhz

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I'm upgrading this week to Sb and am in need of some help on which memory to buy, i'll be oc'ing to around 4.4ghz but i suppose this does'nt affect what ram i should have or does it?
This is the board i'm getting, does it make any difference that the 2133mhz mem is 1.6v, is this too much for the mobo?
Sorry not clued up on this, have been a am2+ user for along time.


This is the mobo i was thinking about but it only says 1.5v for the ram.
