I have ordered this mobo recently but due to non availability of 1066mhz i have to buy 1333mhz ddr3 ram......
but the mobo guideline says that it supports 1333mhz (O.C)

so do i need to change some settings or will it work directly??

Also are the slots different for ddr2 and ddr3 on motherboard or i can plug in any port??



Please HELP

Thanks in advance :)

It will work at reduced speed ..no worries.

No ddr2 and ddr3 slots are different.you need to plug in ddr3 slot

so i dont need to change any settings in bios and it will run??

i have read many threads where they were discussing about the similar problem and in their case the comp wasnt't able to boot
i dont want to end up in similar kind of situation where i spend the money and it did'nt run

Your comp will not boot if you put both ddr2 and ddr3 ram at same time,but in your case you are fine.

No settings needed.It will work

so why have they mentioned 1333 (O.C) on the mobo box instead of directly writting it just as 1333 like they have written 1066 and 800mhz

Ram speed depends on cpu you use.If your cpu support 800mhz speed then ram will automatically downclock it to 800mhz.Donot worry it will work,

they mentioned 1333mhz because mobo by default support 1066mhz,but you can get 1333mhz speed by overclocking it

there is no need of 1600mhz ram i think as you know again you will be downclock to 1066mhz. stick with that corsair 1333mhz one
