Will the AMD Phenom II 965BE support DDR3 1600 natively?

I'm planning to build a new system. I was going with the ASUS M4A79XTD EVO which supports 1600 RAM without OCing. But I've read things about the AMD3 having to be overclocked to synch the ram and cpu. Is this true for this model CPU or was it sped up to make it natively match speeds with 1600 DDR3 ram?

Here are the things I plan to get:
CPU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727
MOBO- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131402
RAM- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226154
Video Card- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130570

This will be primarily a gaming rig that I don't plan to OC at this time. Thanks in advance!
