Hi all. I have 2 builds I am about to start soon. I recently built my own i5 Sandy Bridge setup and was originally going to give my old PC to my niece and nephew but decided to revive it for myself and build them a new one.
1st build is the intel Q6600 revival build(my old pc). The main thing I am questioning here is the memory. Not sure if it is the correct memory to use. The mobo says "DDR3 800/1066/1333 (OC)" but the processor says "FSB Speed 1066 Mhz". Would getting 1333mhz memory be pointless. I am planning to try and overclock. Also what is the difference between DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600), DDR3 1333 (PC3 10660), DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) and are they all compatible with that motherboard?
