Solved Safe to buy higher frequency? Tags: Memory Motherboards Last response: January 7, 2013 9:11 AM in Memory Share nconde25 January 6, 2013 7:05:27 PM I'm about to oder 2 pcs, they are pentiums G860 with H61 motherboards, Both support MAX 1333Mhz memory. Since 1333 and 1666 memory cost exactly the same, i was wondering if it was safe to buy 1666 ones so maybe on future upgrades (mobo/cpu) i'm not stuck with 1333 memory. I think the bios will simply clockdown the memory to 1333 and everything will be fine. But i want to be 100% sure before buying it. Do i make sense?
