Phenom II x4 810 w/ 8gb RAM

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, its been a long time since I posted here. My dad needs to upgrade his pc to 8GB of RAM. He has an Phenom II x4 810 with an Asus M4A78T-E motherboard. I know the CPU supports 1333MHz for RAM, officially. That being said, will it run fine, with 8GB RAM at 1333MHz without any overclock or will I have to do some tuning? I'm only asking because I remember when the AM3 platform launched there were some concerns with 8GB RAM, or was that only for RAM at 1600MHz and up?
Thanks.

No, it'll run fine. Just make sure you dont mix and match ram. Try and keep them all at the same stock ratings.

Oh no, i never mix and match, he'll be buying a new 1600MHz kit, and I'll downclock to 1333MHz - i like to have a little headroom if he ever did want to OC at least a bit.

It will be possible to run that DDR3-1600 kit at the full 1600Mhz speed (pending possible appropriate CPU-NB voltage increases) through the often incorrectly documented x8 memory multiplier.
