    Default Crosshair V Formula-Z

    no i do not own a Crosshair V Formula-Z
    BUT i am trying to understand how things work with it
    the specs say that ram compatibility is DDR3 2400(O.C.)/2133(O.C.)/2000(O.C.)/1800(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066
    ( for example Kingston HyperX Beast 16GB (2 x 8G 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model KHX24C11T3K2/16X - Newegg.com )

    my question is if i buy ddr3 2400 ram with the lowest cas, will i be forced to OC it for it to function properly? ( manufacture intended specs )
    learning is good .....understanding is better .....pleas teach with wisdom............................................ ..............calemus

    Default Re: Crosshair V Formula-Z

    to answer in simple terms yes. Some ram can run higher speeds without CPU OC'd, but some require CPU OCing as well.
    I have the Kingston 2600mhz kit and in order to run them even pass 2400mhz, I have to run my CPU at 4.6ghz to even get it to boot.

    Right now I have my 2600k at 4.2ghz 24/7 and running my corsair ram at 2133mhz, however at stock clocks, I can only get it to run at 1866mhz.
    While every kit can vary on the OC, most cases it requires some kind of OC for those high speeds.
