Hello,
Will 1600Mhz Memory(Gskill Ripjaws) run at 1600MHz on a H67(DH67BL, Bios has already been updated) MB with an Ivy Bridge Processor(Core i5 3570K)?

I don't know why not.

But, it is a moot point.

The current Intel nehalem and sandy bridge cpu's have an excellent integrated ram controller. It is able to keep the cpu fed with data from any speed ram.
The difference in real application performance or FPS between the fastest and slowest ram is on the order of 1-3%.

Synthetic benchmark differences will be impressive, but are largely irrelevant in the real world.

Fancy heat spreaders are mostly marketing too.

Only if you are seeking record level overclocks should you consider faster ram or better latencies.

geofelt is correct with one caveat: there is at least one game that shows a significant benefit from the faster RAM -- Total War Shogun !!. It runs much better with 1600 or 2133 RAM than with 1333.

The 8GB DDR3-1600 1.5V Ripjaws kit is what I regularly recommend, but on boards that support it, which that board does not. Not only is that RAM not supported by that board, but the 3570K is not on the supported CPU list. I believe you need a Gen3 Z68 board, and then the RAM will work great with the 3570K.

Can you guys tell me which ivy bridge processors gonna support by DH67BL then. I'm currently using 4GB DDR3-1600 1.5V Ripjaws kit and it works fine. The only thing is that it's running @ 1333MHz. Intel told all 3rd gen processors gonna support H67/P67/Z68 boards with that bios which cant downgrade after updating. (yes i've done it in recovery mode and Intel ME was updated to v8.XXX)

If you go into BIOS and set Memory speed to "auto" (at least that's the setting I use on my ASUS board, my DDR3-1600 runs at 1600), otherwise you need to manually choose that speed. Furthermore, I looked and it doesn't appear that any of the Ivy Bridge CPU's are supported by that board. Same socket, so you could give it a shot but be prepared to upgrade your board (which would be a good idea anyhow if you plan to run an Ivy Bridge CPU)

my PC configuration:-

RAM: 4gb DDR3-1600 1.5V Gskill Ripjaws. (runs at 1600)
MB : Intel DH67BL
Pro : Intel i7 3770k Ivy Bridge. (with Intel HD 4000)

No additional graphics card.

all are working perfectly. :)
