Yes you can run the ram, but it will be downclocked to 1333 mhz.

Depends on mobo, BIOS, CPU, DRAM and your skills, many OCer's take things above and beyond spec....I generally try on all my rigs, and on many clients rigs, and yes, it can be done.....thing often is you may get it at a higher freq 1600, but does the true performance lag behind what you can do w with 1333 i.e. may require a CL to high to improve performance

its like its sure dat normally u cant run ur ram on a so called mobo...but u could use dat at a clock rate of 1333mhz...whic is ur mbos top..nd most probably u could get dat only at higher loads like if ur running a higher memory bandwidth app like 3d mark11 or smethin....or heavy gaming like BF3

yes its a 1155 socket but not sure in flipkart its just 1333mhz displayed...i dunno may be the 1600 mhz may not be possible.it would be confusing coz the memory modules r manufactured uniquely..it depends on the brand..but i think u should not try to stress so much for a low profile mobo..coz mobos like this has low fsb rates and doent have heatsinks required for vigorous ocing...all da best

Plain English would be nice....guess dats no gud, U tink?.........anyway, as said the mobos rated to 2200 if indeed this is a rev 2, you prob missed the 2200(OC) in the specs, so we are back to CPU now, most Intel CPUs will run 1600, generally if you want higher than that you'll want a K model or if you have a K, the mobo 'supports' XMP, so a simple matter of enabling XMP. If rev 1 should still be able to 1600 at 1600 or could always let it run at the default of 1333 and tighten the timings...as far as frame rates, of course your limited to the on-board but can always stick a discrete GPU in the PCI-E 3 slot

With a Pentium, will pretty much be limited to 1333, sorry didn't see a CPU listed till now, saw the 3570K in your rig and was guessing prob similar

This build is not for me It is for my Brother i already have msi z774-g41mobo with i5-3570k to 4.20o.c
g.skill's ripjawas 1600mhz to 1866o.c
msi r7850 1gd5/oc edition

if Pentium G2020 is 1333mhz suported so i will buy1333mhz ram
can u tell me which one i have to choose from them
1.Kingston ValueRAM DDR3 4 GB PC RAM (KVR1333D3N9/4G)
http://www.flipkart.com/kingston-valueram-ddr3-4-gb-pc-...

2.ADATA Premier DDR3 4 GB PC RAM (AD3U1333W4G9-S)
http://www.flipkart.com/adata-premier-ddr3-4-gb-pc-ram-...

3.Transcend DDR3-1333 DDR3 4 GB PC RAM (JM1333KLN-4G)

help me!!!!!!!!!!

All are pretty near same, might give the nod to Kingston or Adata, again still close but both list them as 1333/1600 so they may have tighter timings in the advanced timings than the Transcend....Of the two then would prob lean towards Kingston
