Should I be worried about voiding my warranty on my Sandy Bridge processor if i put a 1600MHz RAM stick into it?

Can I run it at 1333MHz using the BIOS on the motherboard and avoid voiding my warranty?

Can anyone give me some good input on RAM and Sandy Bridge compatibility?

I have heard a lot of things not sure if they are all true. Is there really problems with putting 8GB sticks into a Sandy Bridge sytsem?

Thanks

Best solution

Just make sure it is 1.5V and running it at 1600MHz is fine.

sandy bridge does its best performance with 1600mhz ram , and as for the stick it depends on the mobo but probably there wont be any problem ,just make sure before you do it that your mobo supports 8GB sticks

I recommend CORSAIR Vengeance 99% of the time, quality RAM and low profile with XMP profile. And if u will get an aftermarket CPU cooler, low profile is the worry free remedy with perfect fit with any large cooler.
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

Vengeance Low Profile heat spreaders have a reduced height of 1.03" (26.25mm). They're designed for high-performance systems with extra-large CPU coolers, small form factor system builds, or any other space-constrained application where standard Vengeance memory might not fit.
