I'm upgrading my PC and want to move up to the ASUS Hero VIII. What RAM speed is best for a Core i7 on that motherboard?
Chris C.
so DDR4 its base is 2133 but can be anywhere in between that and OC 3733
Is anything higher than 2133 considered OC memory?
I have DDR3 2400 ram in my current Z97 system.
Chris C.
no the oc is the 3733 or depending on the base speed of the current stick
Okay, thanks. I was thinking of going with the 3400. That seems to be the "sweet spot" for now.
Chris C.
