    Using DDR3 1600 on i3 540

    Mispidis

      Hello everybody,

      yesterday i bought hyperX fury DDR3 4GB 1600MHz RAM, and i have intel i3 540 (3.06GHz), and motherboard MSI H55M-E23. But there is problem, today i found out that intel i3 540 supports 1333MHz RAM, what do i do now? I tried putting it in it show up screen with windows logo and Preparing Automatic Repair. Please somebody help me, what should i do, can i overclock processor so i can use it. I tried RAM on other PCs and it worked, plus i tried Windows 8 and Windows 7, but nothing changes, but when i put my old RAM which is 2GB 1333MHz everything works fine.

      Thanks in advance!
