Asus z97a how fast memory?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi

So i got this board Asus z97a with 1600mhz memory. But it says OC to 3200mhz?

I heard that nowdays game will get better performance with faster memory.

What kind of fast memory can i get to this board?


Or should i just upgrade all of it? In some games my GPU usage goes down to 70 and the CPU is around 50 but the frames go down like crazy. Im thinking if the memory is bottlnecking or something?

2 sticks of mem at 1600 will still be 1600 mhz speed and will not oc to 3200 thumb.gif

and games do not benifit that much with higher speeds on that platform or any other - a few more fps if lucky

thats a nice setup thumb.gif
