I am upgrading to an I7 980X and have ordered G Skill Trident PC3 16000 (2000mhz) triple channel memory. I have now read two concerning stories- the I7 980X only support RAM up to 1066 MHZ under tripple channel architecture and the second story that I could use this 2000MHZ memory with this processor easy. Any one with experience that could advise me
The G Skill Trident will run with the i7 980X. Your motherboard and tweaking patience will probably determine how fast it will run.
One NewEgg i7-980X owner reported that for his EVGA E760 Classified and OCZ memory he had to manually set 1600-8-8-8-24 @ 1.65v
