Raptor382 Posted November 29, 2013 Share Posted November 29, 2013 I checked the Corsair memory finder, and it suggests for my motherboard that I can use the Dominator ram of over 2400MHz. I have the Gigabyte Z77-D3H, and according to their specs: 0.4 x 1.5V DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 32 GB of system memory * Due to a Windows 32-bit operating system limitation, when more than 4 GB of physical memory is installed, the actual memory size displayed will be less than the size of the physical memory installed. 0.Dual channel memory architecture 0.Support for DDR3 2800(OC)/1600/1333/1066 MHz memory modules 0.Support for non-ECC memory modules 0.Support for Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) memory modules It would appear that this board was basically made for 1600MHz ram, but could be overclocked to 2800MHz? Is this correct? I'm trying to find some replacements to my current ram. I currently have Corsair Vengeance LP memory, 8GB, not sure of the speed. I want to go with 16GB of memory and not sure if I should stick with the Vengeance ram or go with Dominator. I am assuming that the Dominator line is the higher end line? Also, is it better to go with 4x4 or 2x8 or does it matter? I prefer 2x8 so that way, later on down the line if I want to move to 32GB, I can just add 2 more sticks. Suggestions? Also, im running an i5 3570K Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
