Ram question with new mobo

I am wanting to run sli and was thinking about getting this new motherboard. My ram is 1600 and this one 2200(O.C.) and 1333. Could I run my ram if I clocked it down to 1333 or O.C.'d it to 2200?

  3. The 'problem' is if you're running the RAM at DDR3-1600 on any AMD Phenom (x4 or x6) without either a FSB -> 240MHz <or> CPU-NB Frequency -> 2400MHz then it'll be unstable. In addition, quite often the 4GB densities require a BIOS update.

    Q - What EXACT set of RAM ; please provide a link.
    Q - What BIOS version?

    Next, the ASUS M4A87TD EVO won't/doesn't support SLI. However, most of the new AM3+ 990FX do support SLI; you just need to double-check.

    Q - What budget for a new AM3+ MOBO?

    The above link is the mobo I am wanting if my ram will work for it. I was wanting to downclock it if possible.

    I am not sure my bios version
  5. The DDR3-1600 RAM can run, but as I mentioned you'll need to OC the FSB or CPU-NB Frequency or in this case the ASUS has a DOCP setting :)

    AI Overclock Tuner -> DOCP
    DRAM OC Profile -> DDR3-1600
    DRAM Timing Configuration /Enter or Manual
    DRAM CAS -> 9
    DRAM RAS to CAS -> 9
    DRAM RAS to PRE -> 9
    DRAM RAS ACT -> 27
    -
    DRAM Voltage -> 1.64v~1.65v
