I'm buying an Asus P6X58D-E motherboard as part of a gaming rig. I want to buy 2000mhz ram but the board says it needs to be overclocked in order to support the ram speeds. My question is: Is it hard to overclock this board for the ram?
No, it's not hard at all. You will only need to overclock it slightly if you set the memory multliplier to x14 or so. Note that there is very little difference between 1333 MHz and 2000 MHz in terms of overall performance.
