Hi guys!... im going to build an i7 7700 cpu project and i am going to use a TUF Z270 mark1 mobo... it says: 3866(O.C.)/3733(O.C.)/3600(O.C.)/3466(O.C.)/3400(O.C.)/3333(O.C.)/3300(O.C.)/3200(O.C.)/3000(O.C.)/2800(O.C.)/2666(O.C.)/2400(O.C.)/2133 MHz Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory

if i use 3866 (for example) i will face any problem??

greetings...sorry for bad english im cypriot :)
 
Yeah all you have to do to enable the XMP frequency is change a setting in your BIOS. It's just one click of a button. No manual overclocking needed. All DDR4 RAM will run at 2133MHz by default, and yours would too, unless you turn on the XMP profile in your BIOS. It will work fine though and anything up to 3866MHz will be ok with that board, tho that is getting a bit crazy lol. Somewhere around 3000 should be perfect.
 
No only K series chips are unlocked. That clock speed IS from the 7700k though so you are getting an unlocked chip. 7700 and 7700k are not the same. No point paying extra for the overclocking features of a Z270 board if you dont have a CPU that can be overclocked. From the sounds of it you will have though.
