Since the MB supports OC of 2400 I decided to get the 2400 ram. I also am getting the intel core i7 3770k CPU. However was reading some articles that it only supports 1600 speeds? Does that mean I can't utilize the 2400 speed I just bought from my RAM? Or am I able to OC the CPU to get the speeds? I also have a Radeon HD 6850 GPU that I bought last year that will be in the system as well as a SSD 120GB (system) HD.
I have tried searching for the past hour or so and wasn't able to find the answer I was looking for so sorry if this has been answered before, but I wasn't able to find it.
You can overclock the RAM to that speed, your probably reading that it defaults to that speed when you plug them in or that the i7 only officially supports 1600 Mhz. Put in the proper voltages and settings or overclock it to that speed, either way that speed is very possible.
