Hello,
Just wondering if i can use DDR3 1333MHz RAM on Asus P5G41T-M. It says it supports "DDR3 1333(O.C.)/1066/800"
- O.C means overclock, so does that mean i would have to overclock it so that this RAM can work, or will the RAM's FSB adjust to a compatible FSB with the mobo?

Motherboard info:
Front Side Bus 1333/1066/800 MHz
Memory 2 x DIMM, Max. 8 GB, DDR3 1333(O.C.)/1066/800 Non-ECC,Un-buffered Memory

RAM info:
SuperTalent DDR3 1333MHz 2GB PC10660

Yeah, but you will have to downclock the memory to 1066 and then overclock it to 1333 from there.

So does that mean at first when i put it all together it wont work? until i overclock it? I thought the RAM would adjust to the mobo's highest FSB it can handle.

I believe it will set itself for boot up and all that. But you will want to go into bios and set your timings I.E. 7-8-7-24-2T (whichever your ram says to set it at)
