Trick to Use 1600 ram with up to 1333 oc supported Motherboard

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Is there a way to use a 1600 ram with a 1333 supported motherboard?

Can you kindly tell us which motherboard and RAM are you talking about? It will help us because all are different.

^^^ This. You need to give more information when posting questions. We're good, but we're not mind readers!

The latest DDR3 RAM will not work because they have default boot up value of DDR3-1600. Older DDR3 were designed to boot up at DDR3-1333, even if it was DDR3-1600 RAM. So if you find some older DDR3-1600 RAM, pre-2012, it is possible to have DDR3-1600 RAM work in a DDR3-1333 max motherboard.

Yes, they have stock bootup of 1333 MHz. Even if it is 1600 MHz RAM,we have to set the XMP profile to get 1600 MHz clock speed. So you can run that RAM at stock.
But tell your motherboard model so we can actually look at it... smile.gif

I have some of that "newer" 1866 MHz DDR3 with no profiles slower than about 1600 MHz, and they work at the default settings of my MSI H81M boards, which default to 1333 MHz with them and have no manual settings faster than 1400 MHz (despite the instructions saying 1600 MHz is supported).
