  • Hey guys-

    Thsi is absolutey mind-blowingly awesome!!! I have a question though based on what I read on the sight.

    Are the 16GB RAM Modules essentialy forced to run at 1066 Mhz while the 8GB RAM Modules are able to run at 1333Mhz?


    O-Dub Scott

    • Hey Scott….yes…the 16GB are running at 1066MHz…because due to their density. However, this set enables Triple-Channel addressing for maximum data throughput for real world use. Bottom line…no loss of performance.
