NONE of that matters.... Ask this question: Could you send the CPU back to intel because it won't run memory at DDR3-1600Mhz?
The answer: NO, not a chance in hell.... it works fine at 1333Mhz WHICH IS THE MAX SPEED OFFICIALLY SUPPORTED
Look at the box/manual of nearly all motherboard that claim to support anything over 1333 do as O.C. as in OverClocking as in NOT supported by ANY warranty
Refer to pic below... check others they almost all say that....
I noticed the Rampage III Extreme does not list 1600Mhz as an O.C. memory speed [see pic2] - HOWEVER - the manual does say, not very clearly though that it is dependent upon the individual characteristics of the CPU.... which leads back to Intel which does CLEARLY say a Core i7 920 does NOT officially (yes we know most will do that and much more) support ANYTHING above DDR3-1333Mhz
In light of that it doesn't matter if he has 1600000000000Mhz memory and a board that supports 1600000000000Mhz IT DOESN'T MATTER Intel ONLY supports up to 1333 on that cpu.....
No your wrong.
Intel spec doesnt state max as 1333mhz ram.
Intel spec sheet for the i7 920 clearly states the suppoted Memory Types as DDR3-800/1066.
It takes a couple of seconds to get to the manufacturers web page and no more than 1 minute to find the manufacturers specifications,which can not be argued with as they are set there in stone for anyone to read including paypal when it comes to providing your evidence in a dispute/case
After reading the spec sheet/page you will see Intel doesnt state 1600mhz as supported either.
His ram is not within the spec quoted by Intel(manufacturer) so his gripe over mem speeds etc is blown straight out of the water,end of.
Obviously,we all know speeds much higher than 800/1066 are the norm,but its a direct counteract to his main gripe about how his mem should work.
I really hope the scumbag looses
,hes clearly trying to pull a fast one.
