RAM Compability Question
Feb 11, 2012, 10:16 PM
I will build a new tower soon but something confuses me..
These are the 3 main parts :
CPU: i5 2500k
MB: Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3
RAM: G.SKILL F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM 8GB 1600mhz
So can this ram run with the i5? cuz i5 supports 1333mhz..
if yes, whats the trick to make it work?
sorry for the repost but i couldnt find a good answer..

Yes they fit. Go in BIOS and enable the XMP profile for the memory and set the frequency at 1600Mhz , save and quit. Its all done.

Can't run RAM at 1600 (XMP Profile greyed out + timings don't fix)
