Hey guys can you help me out, can i put 2x4GB 1600 mhz ram in an intel z68db motherboard? will it not work or will the ram jump down to 1333 ?
Intel website says the mobo supports 1066/1333Mhz. Many Thanks.. :D

It depends on the BIOS. Does the BIOS allow you to set different speeds for your RAM?

I'm looking to build a new computer, so I dont know about the bios, is there any way to check without going directly into the bios ?

I just checked newegg, there is an z68BC which says
Memory Standard: DDR3 1600/1333/1066

while z68DB says
Memory Standard: DDR3 1333/1066

so will it work ? :) 

Im in India there is very little stock over here. Would have preferred an Asus but forced to go with intel mobo. :(
