Yes. It will simply operate at the maximum frequency the board supports. You could use DDR3-2800 if you wanted to (though it would be a massive waste of money to buy a $300 memory kit to perform like a $30 kit).

thanks williard , but...... my doubt is mobo supports 1333 o.c so will 1600 ram will automatically downgrade itself to 1333 or lower than that..??

Yes it will work, however you may not be able to get it to run at 1600 Mhz. The board should automatically select the fastest memory speed that it supports based on the SMP profiles built in to the memory modules.

yes, it will downgrade itself. It won't run faster than the motherboard.

It should run at DDR3-1333. The O.C. suggests you may have to fiddle with the frequency yourself in the BIOS, which is kind of a pain in the ass if you've never done it before, but it's a one time thing that takes no more than a few minutes.

I have a P43 board (Intel DP43BF) that supports the exact same config (1333 with OC) as yours.

I'm using 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance sticks that are rated to run at DDR3-1600. Mobo auto configured it to 1333.

If yours defaults to 1066 then you can set it to 1333.

Bottom line: Yes, it'll work.

this model of mobo support ddr3 1333 but is for OC by the way of Easy Tune but for normal way if overclock just support the 1066mhz thas i see in my mobo

And too here let a useful info just minutes ago i do answer this solution in the forum of Gigabyte :

I have the same motherboard GA-G41M-COMBO and also I had the same problem, i did buy two memory moduls ADATA AXDU1333GB2G9-3G, just i do think this kind of memory will be working fine in my motherboard because are inside of specs of Mobo.

Here's what happened i did install the two new modules of DDR3 ADATA 1333 and the motherboard just can not boot anything this just kept beeping without any possibility of go inside of BIOS, and then like there was not way to select some option like *Default Settings*, so I assumed than i should delete the BIOS settings through CLR_CMOS jumper and so I try (and even retire the battery) but it did not work and the mobo kept beeping after the clearing of settings, the which is something very strange as this motherboard should support DDR3.

But then happened something very strange here, you see how before i was using two modules of DDR2 both of 1GB and like this still work for my I do have the idea of do downgrade to another bios one older than the last than i do have flashed in the mobo and after of make this and only so finally the motherboar was capable of can boot with the new memory DDR3.

To here that was my solution, but then i do assume something will be wrong with the last bios provided by gigabyte and to confirm this i just think i was be easy prove just i will reflash again the last bios with the new DDR3 Modules working and after this the Motherboard logically would not boot and so i make it, but I had a big surprise when this time with the bios than before cant get work now it do work nicely..


Someone understand where was the problem, but all this was my sulution hope to someone this info be useful... =)


Sorry for my poor inglish, cheersss!!!!!
