1600MHz DDR3 with Core i5 650

Recommended Posts

I just ordered Core i5 650 and a kit of 1333MHz DDR3, but now the order hangs cause they dont have it. They DO have the same kit but in 1600MHz , and i could still change the order, but what does it do with the Core i5 650 that says Memory Types DDR3-1066/1333? (on Intel's site http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=43546 )

Can i use 1600MHz DDR3 with Core i5 650 or is it no no?

It should work fine, but if you could give a link to the memory and motherboard that would be better.

 

 

MB

RAM

Can you believe that all the parts, not just memory, or motherboards, but EVERYthing is so much more expencive in Finland than they are in USA. :angry:

I mean, i have to pay 188 Euro from the ASUS P7P55D-E Pro ... thats 255 US Dollars. OR the RAM, i have to pay 116 Euro, which is 157 US dollars.

 

That is really unfair and i dont know why is it. I mean the components are usually made in Taiwan or something, so is it like shorter way from there to USA than it is to Finland or what it is?

 

Another good example ... i recently bought Canon G11 In USA you can get it with $464 when i had to pay 569 Euro which is 772 USD. How unfair is that?

 

Ok, sorry about this off topic :rolleyes:

Oh yeah that will work perfect. Motherboard is listed to support Memory Standard DDR3 2200(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066.

 

:tup:

 

here are a couple other memory suggestions.

Thanks. ... so the processor's Memory Types DDR3-1066/1333 doesnt mean anything? :unsure:

 

 

http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=43546

There it says Memory Types DDR3-1066/1333

 

 

The order still hangs so i could still change then to 1600.

The memory controller is built into the motherboard, not the cpu. That motherboard will support up to 2000Mhz memory. The motherboard uses dividers for this to work. If it where me I wouldn't even think about any memory under 1600Mhz.

Memory speed and memory channel controller are built into the motherboard as well. Yes the i7 processors also feature an integrated memory controller inside the processor die and support 192bit 3-channel DDR3 memory.
