So if I want it to run at 1600, I have to overclock it? Why do they give it a speed rating and advertise as 1600?

Will the latency adjust to 10-10-10-27 automatically? Score 0 rolli59 a c 241 } Memory May 30, 2012 3:02:35 PM No you would have to adjust the latency!

The system will then use the memory's inbuilt XMP profile and it will run @1600MHz Tech spec: http://www.corsair.com/vengeance-32gb-quad-channel-ddr3...
