Matching CPU "Bus Speed" Tags: CPUs Bus Speed Memory Last response: December 25, 2012 8:30 PM in CPUs Share vlaudX December 25, 2012 3:46:54 PM Do I have to match the CPU Bus Speed to the memory speed of the ram and to the Memory supported on the Mobo? And this one says overclocked to 2133 but does not list the 2000 that my CPU runs at.. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... Will it limit my cpu and make it slower or does matching memory speeds not matter? CPU:http://www.compusa.com/applications/SearchTools/item-de... What memory should i get? More about : matching cpu bus speed mlcaouette a b à CPUs a b } Memory December 25, 2012 5:42:58 PM Just buy memory off the M/B's supported memory list, don't bother getting anything above 1600Mhz unless it is the same price or cheaper. 8Gb is pretty much the standard now but 4Gb will still suffice. I suggest you do some more research prior to buying since it seems there is still a lot for you to learn. m 0 l payturr a b à CPUs December 25, 2012 5:45:12 PM Your CPU's bus speed doesn't matter - if the board supports it, it supports the CPU - just plug it in without worrying about that.
