post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi.I just ordered ASRock Z77 Pro3 which support 2400mhz speed which sound good for my and i know it's does not has a difference but in my country 8gb 2400mhz and 1600mhz it's not expensive so much.I try to ordered 2400mhz and when i call to order they said it's not available these days and i must wait 1 week or more compare to 1-2 days normaly.Sould i wait or call again and buy 1866mhz/1600 which are available. help :)The reason why i choose to buy 2400mhz it's only because i found not expensive MB and which support 2400mhz.

My motherboard is :
ASRock Z77 Pro3
2400 Memory i wanted to buy is http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-Technology-Motherboard-KHX24C11T2K2-8X/dp/B008YAI7RG
or

To be honest mate, unless you're doing benching some 1600MHZ@9-9-9-24 will do you just fine. For real world apps you won't notice the difference.

The DDR3-2400 HyperX kits are indeed dirt cheap these days, however, they seem to fail specs quite often (2 for 2 on my review samples + 2 out of 5 on some PCs that I built).
Also note that a Sandy Bridge CPU in your signature will not be able to run them above DDR3-2133.
