I have a core 2 quad - q8400
Gigabyte GA-G41M Motherboard
Now here, it says that 1333(o.c) ram is allowed
My friend's got a pair of 4gb * 2 G Skill Ripjaws 1600 MHz ram modules that he wants to sell....
Is it safe to put them in the motherboard?
I am aware of the fact that even if it does work, it will step the ram down to 1333 and i will not see any performance upgrades, but i just want to know whether the ram will work so that i may buy them off him, and it will be future proof, so when i move to a newer socket, these may work at their full capacity.
Its a bit urgent guys...Thanks for the help in advance
Regards and cheers
