Will a Ripjaws X 1600 work on any motherboard?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I'm annoyed since the official site says its compatible for Sandy Bridge sockets but will it work on all motherboards? No matter 775 and above? As long as the motherboard supports DDR3 1600 frequency?

Just to clarify I don't want to regret buying.

Thank you,
Armen

Only in very rare cases (like, 0.000001%) will DDR 3 not work in a DDR 3 capable motherboard.

Just advertising, a lot of the new memory is rated for 1.5V because that is the memory specification for SB & it is the latest thing.
It will still work fine at 1.65V & should be fine in any ddr3 mobo.

Should work just fine.

As long as its the right socket, it should work--no problem. I agree with FTW--its all advertising to get you to buy.

One more thing does 1600 CL7 and 1333 CL7 make a big difference? In terms of performance. Can you give me a good explanation what makes these two different from each other?

From what I know is, if the frequency is higher like 1600 it gives you more room to overclock and stuff.

I think higher mhz with same timings give you a chance to pimp the 1600mhz more (tighten timings or loosen en push more mhz) But sometimes its 1333mhz 1.5v and 1600mhz 1.65v, so they just gave it more juice.

I don't believe you'll actually see a difference. I think if you run benchmarks, you'll see a difference in scores.... but I don't think you'll be like "oh snap, it was SO much faster @ 1600!"

Yeah that was the answer I'm looking for. Thanks.

Thanks for the answers. Do not post any further.
