I am looking at a motherboard for a new PC that supports up to DDR3 2200MHz (OC) but only DDR3 1333MHz standard. What will happen if I put a standard DDR3 1600MHz memory into this board? Will I have to do something to make it work or will it work right off?

I am finding it cheaper to put 8gb or 16gb at 1600MHz than 1333Mhz is my reason.

Thanks.

It will default to 1333; 1600 may permit you to overclock the cpu some.
