post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
but does my motherboard support 1600?

http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/content.php?S_ID=450

MEMORY

Support Dual Channel DDR3 800/1066/1333 MHz
4 x DDR3 DIMM Memory Slot
Max. Supports up to 16GB Memory

if it doesnt support it, i could get another motherboard for around $55-60 if you recommend it.

All AMD motherboards support DDR3-1600 via the x8 memory multiplier which is always there even if not advertised as such. 1600Mhz support is more down to the CPU revision (integrated memory controller) rather than motherboard.

AMD's rated specification is up to DDR3-1333 (up to x6.66 memory multiplier) but for some reason it occured to them to put an x8 memory multiplier anyway, and pretty much all AMD CPUs/IMCs can run 1600Mhz stable.

is 1600 so much more superior then the 1333 when it comes to overclocking?

1333 can use any ICs, often which pretty much don't allow overclocking whatsoever. I've seen some 1333 CL9 memory before max out at 1333 8-9-8 and then no more, as well as hold back ref. clock overclocks. 1600Mhz gives you much more options and quality in at least 70% of the cases.

i did alot of research into ram before i bought it which i did like a week ago and from what i saw the kingston hyper x blu's 1600mhz ram it can be overclocked more and performed better thant the g-skills kits on both stock and overclocked i think they are overlooked as they are cheaper but never found a bad review of it
