  1. Best answer
    Well i3 2120 is quite brand new than Pentium Dual Core E5300 and I am using Vengeance 1600Mhz CAS9 with it. No problems.
    Actually it support is more on motherboard.Check the manufacture website for support keeping in mind the motherboard model.

    In my case the it was not in manufacture support list though it works fine.
  2. Why are you building a new PC with such an old chip? The 2120 is two generations old now.
  3. i know the i3 2120 is 2nd gen but, shit, it was £50 (i had no money and its a reason for saying a vague macklemore reference)

    and my motherboard supports up to 2400MHz so it all good now. i now realize it doesn't matter to the cpu, cheers!
