In this link you can find Intel® NUC Kit NUC6i7KYK specifications; Memory Specifications: DDR4-2133+ 1.2V, 1.35V SO-DIMM.
About the overclocking we don’t provide any support for it but you could try getting some help here:
Just saw G.Skills running their new DDR4-3400 on a Skylake at Computex...Didnt touch the FSB
HI. I'm glad to have someone from Intel. Memory question - 2133MHz memory is listed in the official spec, 2400MHz memory is listed as "compatible" So that FSB and Memory run at even multiples, is the 2400 Mhz memory actually faster, or am I fooling myself ?
What am I doing this for? as an ORACLE & M.S. SQL Database Admin (D.B.A.) the NUC6i7KYK fills a need to explore. Databases (DB) need high bandwidth as they go "In Memory" (sigh: yes IMDB for in memory data base is a very confusing acronym)
I'm looking for a high speed compute intensive system that can hold a boat load (not a real technical term) of memory. The new NUC kit looks like it.
Secondly, it *is* stunning to get an i7 kit for $650 (ish ), less than the cost of the processor - $1k
If these questions have already been answered, please just past the URL.
Thanks in advance for any help.
T.C. I'm sorry no one answered you until now. So a convoluted answer to your question.
2133 Mhz is listed as the official spec as that is what the chipset supports. That being said, there are some pieces of memory that will run at higher speeds, like 2400 Mhz. Unfortunately there is no way to know what stick will run at what speed without actually trying it.

I do not work for Intel but can answer your question. According to CMTL the highest speed ram for the NUC6i7KYK is:
16GB CORSAIR 1 Non-ECC, Unbuffered 1.2V, 3000Mhz, Synch 0.750ns, DDR4 SODIMM CMSX32GX4M2A3000C16 (Kit size: 16GBx2) 026430 RoHS-Halogen Free
Here is the complete list:
I do have a pair of those Corsair memory sticks installed in the skull canyon but with windows 10 installed and XMP profile loaded from bios (memory running @ 3000Mhz), I haven't experienced a stable system yet and get BSOD.
Since CMTL test results (XMP profile enabled, memory @ 3000Mhz, bios v34, and windows 7 installed) show the skull canyon passes all tests I wonder why I can't get my skull canyon stable with memory running @ XMP profile. Can someone explain and investigate this?
By the way, the skull canyon runs perfect with memory set to default (auto) settings (2666Mhz)
let me know.
