I have a Gigabyte x58 ud3r motherboard with an I7 950 and 3 sticks of 4GB 1600 gskill RAM. Should I manually set the RAMs multiplier to 12 and timings to 9-9-9-25 or use the bios' setting at 1300 and 7-7-7-20? The Intel guy said that the processor was not made for 1600 RAM and would not be able to take advantage of some if it's features if I set it to 1600. Which option should I go with? Also, when I set it to 1600 the CPU voltage LEDs on my mobo are green and yellow. Is this ok?

Thanks for any input...

Just try it. If you get bluescreens or random reboots, I would run them at the default settings the motherboard bios chooses.
