4670k and 2400 memory compatability question.

I recently ordered several parts and the pcpartpicker noted a possible comparability issue. can anyone help out on if I am borked or if there is something I can do to get it to work out?

  1. Yes it will work fine. I have the same cpu, Asus Maximus VI Hero motherboard and GSkill Trident X 2400Mhz 8gb memory. You have to enable the XMP profile in the BIOS to run at 2400MHz, otherwise it will run at 1333Mhz which is the JEDEC standard (all memory will run at this speed by default).
  2. The memory will work fine at 2400 because your motherboard supports that speed. No compatibility problem.
  3. I personally would ditch the 560 non ti for either a 650 ti for far less or 7850 or 7870 if you can find one. the a 7870 will be about 40% faster
  4. I was worried about the voltage requirements and warnings about the haswell processor. but at least knowing someone else out there has the same combination of memory speed and proc helps.

    reason why the 560 is I picked it up last year when my old system needed an upgrade/fix. so I already own it and it seems it was much cheaper for vid cards then cause they are much higher. I only paid 125 for mine. in a few months I am thinking about upgrading but not any time too soon :P my bank hates me enough as is this month lol.
  5. Nope the voltage is not an issue, been running Haswell memory at 1.65V since they came out on a number of machines with no problem.

    My memory right now is at 2400MHz with 1.67V to be stable when the CPU is overclocked. That's fine for the processor. 1.65V 2400Mhz not overclock will be stable at the meantime but use a stress program like AIDA64 to find if its stable enough. Haswell likes high memory voltages. http://www.anandtech.com/show/7364/memory-scaling-on-haswell

    Anything above 1600Mhz requires 1.6V or more and that's the standard these days.

    ahh sorry I read it wrong haha, didnt see you already had it, but as stated before it will work fine but runing 2400 has really no noticeable improvements
  8. yeah, I found out that going from 1866 to 2400 is actually a slow down I am guessing due to the higher latency? dont know. I just didnt want to set it up turn the memory to standard voltage and watch my cpu pop and fizzle. I would be livid to say the least.
