I have a question about this processor. I find out that this processor does not support for DDR3-1066/1333 memory type.
If i using KingSton HyperX DDR3-1600 on my motherboard to run my desktop, will it cause any effect on processor or other hardware/OS since I7-2700K does not support for DDR3-1600
All the current intel processors support a max of 1066/1333 mhz memmory modules.
But A lot of mainboards have a memmory divider wich if u set it up correctly let u runn your memmory on the speed it was made for.
As u can see in the print screen below
There are on my mainboard (asus P8Z77-v Multiple options)
The current memmory i have is Mushkin Redlines 2133mhz
So as u can see in the cpu z print screen the memmory runs @ 1072mhz times ddr (x2) = more or less 2133mhz
So no you should not have any problems at all with your memmory.
Also the difference between 1333mhz memmory or my mushkin 2133mhz memmory is only like few %
(i beleave it was less than 5% preformance gain.)
I think there should be an xmp option in the bios
Dont know how the gigabyte bios is setup (only use asus my self)
But im pretty sure there should be an intel xtreme memmory profile option.
that should put your memmory on 1600mhz
I would reccomend u to take a look in the manual.
Or take a look in your bios.
looked up the spec's
and here ya go
(Please refer "Memory Support List" for more information.)
So take a look in your bios.
