    Can Asus Maximus IX Code handle 4233-Mhz DDR4 Ram?

    Hello, I have a question.. I'm about to purchase this motherboard and i've noticed that on the specs side it says the motherboard supports only up to 4133 Mhz..
    Maybe it does support 4233 Mhz after all? I really wanna know.. The RAM I will purchase is G.skill Trident Z series. Thanks.

    Hello

    The board is guaranteed to support the memory speed as stated. The actual amount of memory overclock is dependent on the processor's IMC and one's tuning skills.

    The CPU im planning to use is 7700K. Planning to OC to 5.0Ghz / 5.1Ghz. So it's possible to handle 4233 Mhz?

    And if not, It will be possible with lowered OC to the CPU? Let's say 4.8Ghz / 4.9Ghz ?

    It's not the type of CPU that Praz means....it's the actual CPU that you buy. The memory controller is subject to the same silicon lottery as expectations for core overclocking.

    When you see OC next to RAM speed that means actual CPU dependant...that the frequency is not guaranteed....

    Apart from that the board is qualified to a maximum...in this case 4133MHz

    So...that's 4133MHz if your CPU is very good....so 4233...no!

    Worthless to buy 4233 Mhz? Not possible to OC to 4233 Mhz 100%? You sure?

    Haha nice picture.. Just wanted to make sure Thanks. I guess 4133 Mhz is a nice speed anyway.. IF it will be able to reach it. Thanks for your help!
