i have gigabyte ga-h61mds2 rev 3.0 mobo with latest bios version f3....
processor= core i5 3450

my question is this that can i be able to run corsair vengeance LP 2x2gb @ his maximum 1600mhz without underclocked it to 1333mhz.... can i able to do it or not????

gigabyte's official website says that this mobo can support upto 2200 mhz oc xmp profile memories but for this an 3rd generation intel processor is to be installed....

so, should i suppose to buy vengeance lp????? thanx

The i5-3450 is an Ivy Bridge 22nm processor, so the Gigabyte mobo will recognize the XMP profiles.

The mobo itself can run 1600mhz memory so there should be no need to underclock the RAM to 1333mhz.

While the mobo can most likely run the Corsair Vengeance LP 2x2GB modules without issue, it is advisable to pick memory from the motherboard's QVL (Qualified Vendors List).

Given that Corsair is quality memory, I would venture that you can run the Vengeance modules at 1600mhz and have the mobo recognize the XMP profile without issue, but as stated, it is typically best to go with modules on the mobo's QVL to ensure maximum compatibility.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Yes they'll work, initially upon install the mobo will default them to 1333, simply enable XMP and select profile 1, (not 2) and should be good to go.......as far as the QVLs, those are actually pretty worthless, see this:

In the BIOS, there's an advanced section and will have some DRAM entries, should be showing on AUTO, change it to XMP and will prob be given an option to select profile 1 or 2, select profile 1 and it should set the freq, timings, voltages, etc for you
