Yes the 3770K can handle those speeds if you have a motherboard that can too, but why on earth would you waste money on Dom Plats? They're hugely expensive, way more expensive than they should be and they will give you very little performance improvement.
Actually depends on the chip more than the mobo. MSI, Asrock, Asus, Gigabyte at least most of each (not sure about lowest end) have options up to those speeds, depends more if the memory itself & cpu IMC can do it.Originally Posted by ripsaw
Depends on your mobo, not chip. My MVE will do 2666 speeds. That being said, you're not going to notice any performance gains over 1600 unless you're benchmarking.
