Im getting kit of 2x2GB kingston ram memory cards, but the mobo says that it supports only
800;1066;1333;1600(OC)

I'm confused with the last one.
Does it mean that i can add max clocked ddr3 1333MHz ram, and than i can overclock it to maximum of 1600MHz, or I can add already clocked card to 1600MHz???

I'm choosing kingston cause thats I can order from here with best quality.
And I'm going to buy MSI AMD 785GM E51 Mother-board.
I'll be using AMD Phenom II x2 555 Black Ed.
And i need this for HTPC.

Thanks for the help.

Usually o.c. refers to overclocking the cpu, which also increases the ram speed.

Are you sure o1die ?
Because;AFAIK,1600(OC) means that you have to set the speed,voltage and timings of the RAM(Not the CPU) manually in the BIOS.

You can try. I'm in the same boat. I'll be trying the manual settings as soon as I get my new ram. I don't overclock much; too cheap to buy a better cooler.

I'm not planing on overclocking if it is avoidable, but if it can take 1600OC than I guess i would.

Hello,

Since you're planing to buy an AMD Phenom X2 555 Black Edition, you don't have to take care about the Ram speed. You can easily overclock the cpu by increasing the CPU-Multiplier, so no need to Overclock the Ram as well. You won't feel any difference between 1333MHz Ram and 1600MHz Ram, so you should the ram with lower price (Probably 1333MHz models are cheaper)

^+1 Ya think?!

Corsair RAM {Phenom II} - http://www.corsair.com/products/phenomii/default.aspx

ALWAYS look at: 1. MOBO Certified RAM List {QVL}, 2. RAM Mfg's Tested for your MOBO, 3. Approved via RAM Mfg's list. There is a ton of WRONG for your MOBO memory out there, so always verify compatible prior to purchasing. Also, ALWAYS purchase 'Matched Sets' and never 'Mix-Match' RAM.

Good Luck!

Jaquith Thanks for all the help, in this and in other threads, and sorry if I'm being little new to this stuff. I'm trying to learn as much as I can these days, and your tips have been very useful.

Thanks to all others who helped.

(btw i was searching for button to make your last post "the best answer" so this thread would be closed, and it seems i can't find one :) , so how to do that? )

Now you can select the BA.

And 1600 O.C. only works if your RAM isn't rated at 1600.
