Currently sporting a Gigabyte GA MA770T UD3P, which supports DDR3 1666(OC)/1333/1066. If I get a 4 gigs of 1600, do I have to oc it to 1666 to make it stable or will it run fine on 1600? Sorry if noob question, haven't dealt with RAM much in the past...

Thanks guys

So they're having issues using four 1333's, and the article talks a bunch about the other RAM speeds, how does this relate to my question...and I'm planning on only using 2 sticks of 1600, so...

Read the comments on Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128392
Several people have gotten 1600 RAM to work perfectly fine, while some people had to adjust the motherboard to allow it to read the 1600 RAM. Either way, no overclocking is necessary.

Thank you for that, I'll look into it
