I have a Q6600 that i want to overclock to 3.0 GHz by setting the FSB to 333MHz.
If I do this and bought 1066 DDR3 Ram, would I have to use a memory divider as to not overclock the ram past its 1066 limit?
If I do this and bought 1333 DDR3 Ram, then would it be synchronous and perform better then if I had to use a memory divider?
I see that I can get DDR3 1600 for the same price as DDR3 1333:
The motherboard says it supports 1333 and 1600 OC. DDR3. And it says the motherboard supports a FSB of 1333 and 1600 OC.
If i buy DDR3 1600 Ram, will it work in this board? If it would, I know that I wouldn't be able to use that to it full potential because the FSB of my processor would be OC'ed to 1333. Would it be worth it to have the 1600 DDR3 since its the same price and could be used for possible upgrades in the future?
So the main questions lead to: What kind of RAM should I buy? If i want an OC of 3.0 GHZ (333*9). Would DDR3 1600 RAM work in that motherboard and be worth getting considering its the same price? If I want to go past a 333MHz FSB with DDR3 1333 RAM, then I would have to use a memory divider since any value above 333 *4 would be damaging the RAM?
