I have just bought a 2nd user i3 - 4330 , but I need some ram , I have seen that the cpu runs with 1333 and 1600 ram .

I was going to buy HyperX FURY Series 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) DDR3 1866 until I read the specs for a i3 4330 .

But based on the z97 motherboard GA-Z97P-D3 by Gigabyte , will the the 1866 still work with the CPU ? will it clock the speed down to 1600 automatically ? or will I be able to run the ram at 1866 mhz with the CPU and hopefully overclock the ram further and tighten up the timings on the ram ?

I know the CPU cannot be overclocked , so just happy to overclock the ram if that is possible.

I assume worse case , the ram will be down clocked to 1600.

Advice please. TYI

It will do 1866 MHz ram based on a Newegg review. This user did it by just enabling X.M.P profiles without overclocking. Note that some reviews on the the page below suggest getting a aftermarket cooler, In my opinion it doesn't get hot enough to justify getting one. It gets up to 70C with prime95 on a intel stock cooler which is perfectly fine. On normal use you'll probably only reach 55C.

You can read the reviews here:
