  1. Best answer
    technically 1600 ram if you put it in a motherboard that can support only 1066 or 1333, the ram should (sometimes it doesn't work in rare occasions) down step and function at 1333Mhz
  2. DDR3-1600 will fit in DDR3 slots. If motherboard only supports DDR3-1066 and DDR3-1333, plugging in a DDR3-1600 RAM would only run at slower DDR3-1066 or DDR3-1333 speeds.
  3. So no problem?
  4. None. I use a DDR3-1866 (check my specs) and my board only supports DDR3-1600. The RAM runs/works at 1600MHz (not 1866MHz).
  5. But my pc is pre-build still no problem?
  6. *facepalms* does your system support DDR3 or DDR3L ?
  7. DDR3

  9. it will be a problem if it a old chipset like G41,if not it's okay
