Memory Confusion on a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I used to understand memory. You'd get your memory to match your FSB, it was simple. Now I see to be confused.

On the Gigabyte EP45-UD3P it states the FSB is 1600/1333 and that the memory standard is DDR2 1333. Now there isnt any memory at that standard, so what do you get? I read posts about people hoping to push their RAM to 1200, which is more confusion.

What is the memory to get for this board? Do you get 800 or 1066 or what? Does memory no longer match FSB?

If I want it to run at 1600 do I get 800 memory? Is 1333 for 667 memory?

For the guy trying to hit 1200 with his memory, what speed was that FSB/CPU corresponding to?

The UD3P supports lots of memory-speeds. 1333+ is the max RAMspeed the board is designed to take(officially). Theres world records stacking up as we speak exceeding 1600mHz RAMspeed on this board and the UD3R.
The board works fine with 800mHz, 1066mHz etc.
What RAMspeed this board can take is limited by your RAMsticks. It recognizes what sticks you install by itself and kinda sets them up by default.

*edit* Look at my sig-system for instance. Thats my stock RAMspeed but now im running them at 844 just so i can get 1:1divider at 422FSB. This mobo has endless possibilities.
