Hi there,

Recently I purchased some parts to make a PC and I was wondering if these parts are compatible and will they work?
The parts in question are...

CPU: Intel Core i3 2100


My concern is that the i3 only supports up to 1333MHz RAM and the motherboard says to only use 1.5v RAM. The RAM I have chosen is 1600MHz and 1.65v, but will it still work? Safely?

Thanks :)

Probably, but I would still select 1.5v ram which is recommended by Intel.

it will work
your motherboard "should" under volt and underclock your ram to the correct level of your cpu

in the case that it doesnt automatically under volt it is it hard/possible to under volt in manually in the bios? :o
