mpdailey Posted September 9, 2008 Share Posted September 9, 2008 I bought an Intel DX48BT2 motherboard and initially one set of TW3X2G1600C9DHX RAM. However, I then read the note included with the motherboard saying it can only handle 2GB max of 1600 RAM so I returned it with the plan of getting 4GB of 1300 or 1066. I eventually settled on one set of TW3X4G1333C9DHX. The question I have is, if RAM is only recognized at 1066 by the OS, is there any value in having higher rated RAM? By default the BIOS sets the RAM at 1066, and while I can manually change it to 1333, is there any performance improvement? I am not looking to overclock, just have the RAM recognized and run at what it actually is. My computer (newly scratch built), freezes on occasion with memory faults, but I think that is coming from the memory card, not the system memory. It is a Radeon 4870 OC and think the drivers aren't quite debugged. Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
