asus p8z68 pro gen 3 memory question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
i wanted to get some faster speed memory in my mobo since im clocked @ 4.7ghz right now on my 2500k
currently i have 8gb of DDR3 1600mhz speed memory, corsair vengeance LP.

I was thinking about getting some faster speed memory but im not sure how that works when you're overclocked.
Stock the fastest speed the board takes is 1600mhz.
2200(O.C.) / 2133(O.C.) / 1866(O.C.) are the speeds I can use with the overclock?

Just need some clarification on that.

this just shows you what this mobo is capable of ,basically your upper limit/tested @ will be about 2133~2200 more like 2133 tho ,so any RAM with 2133XMP should work just fine ( two modules will give you less headache )

Here is a nice kit:

If your BCLK is overclocked, G.Skill RAM should handle it just fine. ~DDR3-2200+ is no problem

I have one system basically identical to yours. thumb.gif
