The motherboard says this about its RAM compatibility:
Number of Memory Slots --> 6×240pin
Memory Standard --> DDR3 2000 (O.C) / 1866 (O.C) / 1333
Maximum Memory Supported --> 24GB
Channel Supported --> Triple Channel
The RAM I would like to purchase is DDR3 1800. It confuses me whether this motherboard is compatible with RAM that fast only when overclocked or if it's not compatible at all.
I also selected this RAM because I saw that it remains stable from voltages of 1.7V up to 1.9V, and I figured that means that it could be overclocked further past the DDR3 1800 it is rated at.
So, is this RAM compatible with the selected motherboard? Can it be overclocked well? If not, what is some compatible RAM that I could overclock with this build?
Lastly, and this is just something I thought I saw mentioned elsewhere. Someone said that the Core i7 920 is only compatible with DDR3 1333, and I thought this was preposterous because DDR3 RAM can be made to much faster speeds. So, does the Core i7 limit the speed of the RAM I get? Is there any point to me getting faster RAM than 1333?
Thank you for any help that can be given, and I apologize if any of this makes little or no sense. As I said, RAM is not my strong suit.
