2133 Ram

Hello I am upgrading my pc. i have a gtx 680 Evga and i am looking to get these 3 things

AMD Eight-Core Processor 3.6

Mother Board/ ASUS Sabertooth 990FX

2133 Ram

Will the 2133 ram work with this mother board and CPU? Will it run at 2133? Will i need to over clock it to do that? I am trying to get a good setup for battlefield 3

Is this the best AMD motherboard for the price to run this setup?

Any help would be great thanks!

  1. That MB only supports up to DDR3 1866 RAM. If you get 1866 ram, it should be detected automatically. In case it isn't automatically detected, it's no big deal to go into the BIOS and set the RAM speed.

    This is a very good motherboard. No need to look further.
  2. if you are going to be gaming with a high end card like that, go intel. get any 1155 board (i recommend Z68 or Z77) and get an i5 processor. i would recommend the 2500k or the 3570k. i'm using the MSI Z77A GD55 mobo and it works PERFECT. amazing overclocking. i got my 3770k to 4.8GHz, which is rare for ivybridge. because you have a higher budget i would suggest a GD65: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130643
    and a 3570k: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504

    don't get 2133MHz RAM. you simply don't need it. 1600MHz is fine, just get 1600MHz memory then OC it too 1866MHz if you still feel like you need more speed. but there is next to no performance boost between 1600MHz and 2133MHz when gaming and doing everyday things. i would get http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233185 instead.

    Edit: nevermind. 2133MHz is only 5$ more than 1600MHz. go for it before that awesome deal expires! although, if you do end up getting a GD65, i would recommend blue instead. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233300 it has bad reviews of it being unstable at 1.5V, but just raise the voltage to 1.65V and you are fine.
  3. I dont i think the amd 8 core is better.. Ill get the 1866 ram then
  4. the question is can i run it at 2133
