Mobos supporting 2400MHz ram by default and Mobos that don't?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, I was wondering why is that there are some mobos that support 2400MHz ram frequency without any prior OCing/changes just be default, and some other mobos need OCing to support 2400MHz ram?

does this mean the one that support it by default is a better mobo by any mean?


example of the mobos:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131971 - needs OC for 2400MHz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131802 - needs OC for 2400MHz

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128533 - supports by default
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813121621 - support by default

Thanks for considering my question smile.gif

2400 is OC for both, and what it means is that some cpus support different max frequencies, liek the FX-8350 is supporting 1866 natively so motherboards that work on the 990FX and what ever other series that support AM3+ support 1866 memory speeds, Ivy i believe supported up to 2133 natively so it could run wihtout a problem 2400 oc is it hink the max memory clock up to a certain point (8pack or w.e his name was reached 3ghz on gskills) so if your ram can do 2400 mhz or you buy a 2400 mhz kit, its overclocked ram. also some carriers might forget to put OC or they put it 2400 maybe cause haswell supports 2400 nativley tongue.gif

im nto sure my information is 100% correct, so ill let another member chime in but from what ive done readings on memories and memory clock speeds this is what ive come up with!

There is a couple of things to consider here,

1 RAM speed is CPU dependant, at the end of the day its the memory controller that runs the ram at a given speed, that is on the CPU and not the motherboard.

2.The chip will have a ram spec such as a 3770k which supports 1600mhz, anything above that is considered an overclock

All those boards saying they support 2400 ram is overclocked, its clearly they are just wording it different on the marketing speel.


I hope that makes sense
