Hello guys, only one question

Why this mobo have XMP and support memory ram up to 3300mhz if an intel 7ta gen non-k proccesor only support 2400mhz max?

Someone can explain me this? :??:

  1. Because a lot of (and I mean a shockingly large number) of people don't know what the hell they are doing and put k series chips in all manner of boards. (H110/b150/h170/b250/h270) I've seen a build with a k series from someone on here on ever chipset in the past week. (Bunch of them on h110)

    You are right, but that doesn't explain why Asus put that function in a H270 mobo if we can't use it without a K processor, it's confusing :mmmfff:
  3. Yes it does. Some idiot will drop a k series chip in that board and be happy when their 3600mhz memory works.

    Oh, I thought you had to oc the cpu before activate XMP to oc the ram. Look:

    https://ark.intel.com/products/97144/Intel-Core-i5-7600K-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-4_20-GHz

    In memory specifications says it support ddr4 2133-2400mhz, I think this is in stock mode without oc

    Not sure what the limit without an oc is but it's well above 2400. My 3350p supposedly will only run 1600 MHz memory but I can run 2133 with bad timings if I wanted to (have a z77 board)

    I am designing a system and was just about to do this very thing. Why would it be idiotic? The K series CPU has a higher stock frequency than the locked model, and I assumed that it is a higher binned chip too. What am I missing, or am I an idiot?

    Calling people idiots will get you every time.

    The 7700K is cheaper on sale than other non-K CPUs. There is nothing idiotic about wanting a completely stock, higher clocked CPU. If you have no intention of overclocking you but want the best performance, the 7700K is still the way to go, along with a H270 board. The ROG Strix line is the best H270 I've seen with plenty of enthusiast features at a much lower price point.

    Price performance ratio is spot on with the H series. Don't let internet asshats deter you from building up a nice 7700K H270 build.
  8. You can get a z270 board with similar features for the same $ and have the option of ocing it. It's perfectly fine to run a cpu stock it's just silly to buy a h270 board for it.
