Will this memory work

i just bought this mobo and is being shipped right now
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138354

it says it supports ddr3 1866 OC
and i have this memory (4 of these so total of 16gb)
http://www.frys.com/product/7147562?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG

so will i have to change any setting in my mobo bios for the memory to run at normal speed (not overclock) but run at 1866mhz and will it just auto detect and change the setting by itself and if i dont change any setting that will it only run at 1600


and what setting should i change if i do have to to make the ram run at full performance and also what setting to overclock it

i will be using i7 3770k

  1. edit: my mind went blank and i didn't see the links :P
  2. No XMP there.

    Are u serious about 4GB RAM only?

    Why don't u get a kit?
  3. U can get this kit, the speed 1866MHz will not give u more than 1-2% more performance.

  4. Or u can get this one from Newegg, and remember,

    FRYS do match the newegg prices.

    With this RAM, u can just enable the XMP and u are set.

  7. If its a deal like that, why not : )
  8. The important thing is that the RAM is running @ 1.5V.
