QX9770 @ 1600Mhz

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
" The QX9770 being reviewed today is Intel's latest Socket 775 Quad-Core which not only boasts the smaller 45nm manufacturing process as the QX9650 but it also ups the stock core speed by 200Mhz to 3.2Ghz, cranks up the FSB from 1333Mhz to a screaming 1600Mhz, and for good measure slaps on another 4MB of on die cache to keep all cores fed properly."

Does the above quote mean my motherboard will run at 1600 Mhz? My motherboard (as specified below) appears to be rated at 1333 Mhz. It's my understanding the 1600 Mhz chip will be limited by the FSB of the mobo.

Correct????

Supported CPU
CPU Socket Type LGA 775
CPU Type Quad-core / Core 2 Duo / Pentium D / Celeron
FSB 1333/1066MHz

Just because a mobo is only rated for a certain amount doesnt mean you can't surpass it. 1600+ is obtainable on any decent board.
