680 Vs P45 ram speed


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


From what i can work out (flame away if i am wrong) dominator 2x2Gb 8500C5D ram will only run at 800Mhz on a clocked Asus striker extreme 680i chipset.


But what about the the Asus P5Q Deluxe using the P45 chipset? will it run at 1066Mhz?

I am looking to possibly change mobos and wondered if i could eke out some extra speed from my ram. Going to be using a Q6600 G0 at 3.6 Ghz if it does.

It really depends on the particular memory controller on each board itself. Both of those boards should run the 1066MHz modules however the Striker may take some extra tweaking to get above 1000MHz.
