Hi, I am about to build an ivy bridge build (this is m first building computer) and would like to overclock the i7-3770k to 4.8ghz with an amazing fan. My issue is, I also won't fast memory (2133mhz) but I realize that the memory speed somehow affects the clock of the cpu. What i do not understand is how. Should I be getting different memory? My memory is still at 1.5v.

It doesn't.

In fact anything above 1333mhz won't make any difference in real world applications.

+1 amuffin....Although you can lower latency to increase performance substantially...I went from CAS 9 to CAS 7 and this increased my fps in Heaven 3.0 from 42 fps average to 56 fps average

So i should put latency in front of speed?

Point is, it doesn't matter. Just make sure the voltage is 1.5v, anything above that can damage the chip.

Also don't get that corsair ram with high heatsinks, it will get in the way of most aftermarket coolers.
