trying to figure out if i should go with 16gb 1866mhz ram or 16gb 2400mhz ram

I have just bought a gigabyte 990fxa-ud7 top of the line motherboard and a top of the line AMD 8350 8core 4.2ghz black edition FX processor. My motherboard says up to 1866 or 2000oc MHz ram. I was wandering if I bought the g skill 2400mhz 16gb ram if my motherboard would automatically oc to 2000mhz or if I had to manually do it or if it would run the full 2400mhz?

  1. It really depends on what you are going to do. You would probably have to manually do it, yes. This is simply achieved from your BIOS. If you are going to game, buy the 1866mhZ RAM. If you are going to do some pretty detailed, demanding rendering, modelling e.c.t buy the 2400mhZ RAM.
  2. I'm just going to be doing alot of gaming. Mostly wow and steam games. I'm also adding a his h295lf8g4m 8gb 1024bit vga and want the best ram to match it. I don't wanna spend $1500 on a video card and be lacking in ram speed.

    The speed of RAM (and RAM in general) won't make much of an impact in most games. Go for the 1866mHZ RAM.
  4. Sorry for the negative attitude.
