this may seem stupid question.
i have z68x-ud4 motherboard with 2600k processor. now the 2600k processor only suppports ram upto1333. so if i put in 8gb-1600 ram will it not recognise it at all or will it just recognise it as 1333?
On ALL Sandy Bridge LGA 1155 CPU's Default to DDR3-1333, never DDR3-1600. You'll need to go into the BIOS and set either the Memory Multiplier -> 16, CAS Timings per Rated (CAS-TRCD-TRP-TRAS), Command Rate -> 2, and if the DRAM Voltage per Rated is anything but 1.50v set that as well. Otherwise use XMP and Profile1 for (1) kit only. On Gigabyte in particular I recommend setting the RAM manually over using XMP; less issues.
