Well native support is 1600MHz and the platform calls for 1.5volts.

so then will i have to overclock it if i buy one that is more than 1600? do you think they will give any support to do this because im a noob with overclocking my ram and really dont want to because i can easily kill it(easier than cpu or gpu) and if it crashes... it doesnt boot

If the ram is made for the target speed then it is easy to overclock it and nothing should happen to it. On the other hand trying to run ram at more speed than it is made for is difficult.

so then if i just boost the clock speed up then it should just work i have to do nothing with the timing etc

a higher clock usually need looser timings. just compare 1333 vs 1600, 1333 will usually have tighter timings.
for this case, we cant have the cake and eat it too. it is possible with some luck and a lot of patience i guess

Yes you will have to set the ram manually and timings as well as advertised on the ram.

Of course they look cheap, but their price isn't as cheap as better Samsung memory.

You set the advertised timings in BIOS as specified on your ram!
