I am somewhat confused by the whole "memory standard" specification. I assume if the memory is listed, the mobo can use that memory (1066/1333), etc. But what does it mean when it lists something like 1600(OC). In the case with this motherboard
would that motherboard support
Thanks in advance for the clarification.

OC means overclocked. If you are getting an i3 or i5 CPU then you can run memory up to 1333 MHz at stock settings. If you OC your CPU, you can run the RAM at higher frequencies.
