Default Re: Building a computer, need help with MOBO and memory

So this shouldn't matter too much as the system will automatically adjust, but just FYI that mobo will not run those memory modules at their standard speed of DDR3 2400 and 1866, respectively.

"DDR3 2800(O.C.)/2600(O.C.)/2400(O.C.)/2200(O.C.)/2133(O.C.)/2000(O.C.)/1866(O.C.)/1800(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066"

The "O.C." next to those speeds means the mobo, fsb, CPU must be overclocked to allow those speeds to be utilized. You should be very comfortable knowing how to do that as it's a little advanced, or I highly recommend going for a cheaper memory set.

DDR3 1600 MHz should be fine and requires no overclocking for your setup.
