Can 3770k run 2666 RAM ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My 2500k is limited to 2133, even though I have a 2666 kit. I have some sort of upgrade itch, thought about going 290 -> 980 but that will cost me as much as another 290 to run CF. So, it came to me that getting a 3770k would be a nice upgrade for my system. First of all, the RAM speed if it can run 2666 (that'll be 533MHz faster, quite a lot). Second of all, I get pcie 3.0 8x + 8x, not 2.0 8x+8x if I do decide to get another 290. Plus DX12 might just utilize HT to some extent, unlike DX11. Anyone here running 2666/2800 on IB ? Z77 ext 4 is supposedly compatibile with my 2666 kit, probably just requires IB to run it.The whole transaction would be around 400PLN ($110) if I sell my 2500k later.

Yeah you'll be fine mate, Z77 offers all they way up to 32 multi for RAM. I run a 2400MHz Kit on my 3770K Bench rig, had it running at 2666Mhz, need to do more to get it stable, but the IMC should be fine.
