I7-3930K with faster than 1600hmz DDR3 SAFE ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I heard that the sandy bridge, 3930K cpu doesn't like DDR3 ram faster than 1600mhz, that it can kill the CPU. I wonder if it's true or not?

I currently have my3930K with Corsair Dominator-GT 2133mhz@1.5volts oem specs.

Don't know where you obtained that info, but it's wrong.

Keep your VCCSA within .6v of your dram voltage or that will degrade or kill your cpu/imc.
