Hi

I bought some Corsair Vengeance RAM (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004CRSM4I/ref=oss_product) which is supposed to be capable of running at 1600 MHz. However, CPU-z and my BIOS both say it's only running at 1333 MHz. My motherboard (Asus M4A87TD) supports 1600 MHz, and there is the option in the BIOS to set it to that speed. Are there any negative consequences of doing this? i.e. system instability, hardware failure, etc.

Thanks,

FlutterGuy

NO there's is no problem if you set it at 1600MHz, If your at the RAM's rated speed and MoBo supports it than there wont be any problem...

Note: Just stay at 1600MHz because going over by 100MHz will cause instability unless you OC CPU and stuff...
