Solved I3 2100 support 1600MHz RAM? Tags: CPUs Support Last response: June 28, 2012 4:53 PM in CPUs Share trailbreaker June 13, 2012 7:01:05 AM Hi! Intel shows that Core i3 2nd Gen. 2100 (3.1GHz) supports DDR3 memory with only up to 1333MHz. I want to know, if I have this i3 2100 with a motherboard which can do up to 1600MHz & 2400MHz (overclocked), what is the maximum frequency I can go up to? 1333MHz ? Or 1600MHz? Thanks! in advance...

But very little performance gain is achieved going from 1333MHZ to 1600MHZ. trailbreaker June 16, 2012 6:44:19 PM Mmmm.... thanks! but it seems like my question didn't mean what i want.
