Okay, so i have bought ddr3-2400 16 gb ram. I am wondering what specs my motherboard should have to support this kind of RAM.
In the motherboard specs, there are two kinds of memory listed
- the first one is normal (1333,1600) -the second one is overclocked memory, which is usually much higher transfer rates, like (1800,2133,2400,2666,3000)
so my question is does my motherboard need to have 2400 listed under the non-overclocked memory?
If it doesn't can i still run it?
If i do run it, what are the drawbacks (more voltage/heating/whatever)? so what can i do to fix it (include cooling or is it fine that my motherboard lists 2400 in the OC section and that is enough)
