  1. Hi,
    I'd like to ask a question that is very important to me.
    I need to buy a RAM that achieves maximum available speed in the market for a given MB and CPU. My question is: To which RAM pass max I have to stick ... CPU's or MB's?? I.e. my CPU RAM pass max is 1600 MHz while my MB RAM pass max is 2133 MHz...can I get a RAM with 2133 MHz pass or should I stick to the CPU's 1600 MHz ??
    thank you a lot in advance

    Anything >1600MHz will provide very little noticeable improvement in performance. 1600MHz is the sweet spot.
