I latched onto a deal from Newegg today for a G6950 with BIOSTAR TH55B HD for cheap, but I am afraid I screwed up buying the memory.

I looked at the memory that was compatible for that board and purchased 4gb's of DDR3 1600, but I am afraid it will not work that processor (Intel says DDR3 1066 for that CPU).

Anybody running such a combination or can confirm for sure if it will/won't work?

Thanks in advance!

I'm pretty sure that if the RAM is what the Motherboard recommends then nothing else matters, I mean the only time you need to worry is possibly when OC'ing for the fact that some BIOS when changing the TIMINGS OF THE CPU IT WILL CHANGE THE TIMING OF THE RAM DIMM SLOTS.

I hope this helps you out.

That should be fine.

It normally automaticly changes to the reccomended speed, but if it dosen't you can change the timings/voltage/speed manually.

To be able to get 1600mhz out of the ram you would need to Overclock your cpu (Dont do this unless you know what you are doing) .
