Will this motherboard work well with this CPU and this RAM? Someone mentioned that I may need to slightly overclock the processor and manually set the RAM's speed in the BIOS (although that was for a slightly different motherboard).
Specifically, he said:
Yes. You just may have to set the specs manually in the BIOS. It's likely the CPU will have to have a very slight overclock to run the sticks at the correct settings.
How do I go around doing this, and are they compatible?
For setting the RAM's config,you need to know the RAM's voltage/speed and timings(look in the manufacturer's site)and then go to the BIOS,and you can set the RAM configs there.
This thread has some useful links for setting memory timings,voltages,speed http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/254402-29-memory-over...
