hello all. back with another hard to find answer. im looking at replacing my corsiar xm3 ram 2x2 4gb 1333mhz dual channel ram for some g skill flare ram. this stuff

im trying to find good ram that will work well with my 1090t my msi mobo says it only supports 1600mhz ram (oc) this ram is 1800mhz.. could i still use it and just relax the timings to 1600mhz? if so perfect. if not what is some good ram for a 1090t. 1600mhz. my xm3 ram just isnt cutting it. it is not stable at its reccomended timings so over clocking my cpu is really anoying.

I suspect that even Jaquith will agree with me: You can install faster-rated ram in a system that runs it at a slower speed; it will just run slower. Go right ahead, if you can't find some 1600 stuff at a lower price.
