Hi, i want to buy this Motherboard:

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813186168

it says that it support ddr3 1333 mhz

i also want to buy this RAM

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227320

and i want to know if the 1600 ram can work in a 1333 motherboard.
Is the motherboard will support it and downgrade the speed to 1333
or is it not goig to boot at all?

This 1600 RAM is cheaper than other 1333 RAM... (CA)

Thx for your answer

  1. Yes, it should. Then you can go into the BIOS and try to set it at the proper speed, latencies, and voltage.
  2. Well that will be a negative, while most modules @ 1600Mhz will work on your board @ lower speeds, those reapers will most likely give you a headache.... Get these instead and make sure to change the timings and voltage in the bios prior to booting into windows....
