    Question Help

    First question is if I am not overclocking my system could i use DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) even tho on the mother board stats next to DDR3 2400 it has (O.C.)?

    Second if I am not going to overclock my system would it be better to get the sabertooth over the rampage?

    Thanks
    Forgive my naivety i am a new builderHi all, am turning to the experts for this, as I am facing a dilemma.

    Have two questions for you all.

    Which motherboard would you recommend?
    - ASUS Sabertooth Z77
    - ASUS P8Z77-v Deluxe

    I'm pairing it with an i7-3770k and 16gb Vengeance 1800mhz ram.

    I also wanted to ask to see if anyone has any experience with these boards and the Corsair H60, i had major issues fitting this cooler on to my old board (asus p5b-deluxe) and just wondered if anyone had tried this.

    Re: Do Scan do price match?

    Firstly welcome to Hexus Forums

    Secondly what do you use your system for to require16gb 2400MHZ ram?

    Thirdly I don't like Asus boards because their RMA process is long and protracted and poor.

    Fourthly, what are you looking in a motherboard? Just Ivy Bridge compatability or more like WIFI, more SATA 3 ports, overclock potential e.t.c
