Would you mess with the timings too much or just leave it at stock settings? Yeah I'm not sure why people hate their boards... Maybe because you don't have to spend $300 to get a decent one so people think more expensive is better...
But....but, I'm not wearing a cup
Well, basically you're talking yourself into why you need it, because it's not necessary
Look for the kit on their site by model number and see what it says. If it autos to 1.6 then I would use that.
I'm not the best person to ask that. I run my kit at 1600 with stock timings (So yes that's 1600 with 11's). The IMC on the 2nd and 3rd gen Core i chips are very efficient so you don't see any gains over standard clocks without OCing very high. I'm talking 4.6-5GHz. That's why I keep iterating it isn't necessary. You get more help with large amounts of RAM because you can stuff whole programs in RAMDisk. For instance, my modded copy of Skyrim is 20GB and I put it in RAM. All of it. Loading times are ridiculously quick. Other than that, anything over the standard 8GB/1600MHz is pretty useless.
Yea people think more expensive is better. Typically that's the case, but not always. A 100 dollar Z77 board will do almost all the same things a 300 and 400 dollar one will minus a few super enthusiast things like 4 way SLI and such. Not those days anymore where a person spending 300 bucks on a board gets things the under dogs don't.
