P55: Is DDR3-1600 OC? Tags: Memory DDR3 Last response: October 19, 2009 5:43 PM in Memory Share borchert October 19, 2009 4:26:17 PM I'm about to purchase a P55 system (i7-860) that I do not intend to overclock. Motherboard specs from Asus and others show memory above DDR3-1600 as "O.C." but 1600 isn't listed this way. Isn't the nominal bus 1333? Why isn't 1600 listed as OC?
