This is the first time I have posted anywhere so forgive me if this is confusing. Something has been puzzling me with the 1366 mobo's' can you use 1600,1800,1866 and 2000mhz ram only through overclocking? I am wandering this because the ASUS P6T and P6TD specs on TigerDirect says it supports 1600,1800mhz ect... ram but beside the 1600,1800,2000mhz ram it says (Overclocking). None of the other mobo's says that.
Or am I just asking a stupid question.
Thanks though for any reply
Well I am pretty sure that the Asus P6T boards support 1333mhz on stock speeds, if you overclock them then they will support higher frequencies and if you buy higher ram then it supports it will downclock it to its support speed. Gigbyte boards support 2000mhz on stock i think so it varies from manufacture of the board and type of board.
So if the board says it supports say... 2000mhz the ram will run at 2000mhz stock speed. I am no good with overclocking so I just wanted to make sure that if I bought 2000mhz ram I wouldn't have to mess with the bios. I haven't been able to find any answer for this question so I thought I'd see if anyone here could help.
And will there be any noticeable difference between 1333 and 2000mhz ram. I am going to build a new computer and wanted it to be FAST for a change.
