    I have recently bought a G.Skill RipjawsX 2x4GB 2133 Mhz CL9-11-11-31. This is replacing my old Kingston HyperX 1x8GB 1600 Mhz CL10.

    I am current using Pentium G630 but I will be upgrading to a 8320 or 8350 soon after 3 months that is why I am purchasing this RAM ahead.

    But when I checked the specs for the 8320/8350 it stated that MAX MEMORY SUPPORT is 1866.

    Can I use the max 2133 Mhz on my next setup? Or what processors will support my max Mhz?

    Please Help Thanks :)

    All you do is go into the BIOS, and set the RAM frequency to run at 2133mhz. No need to OC anything for that.

    no, some motherboard couldnt run the high speed natively, so you need to set the speed by yourself

    just remember
    what is your board?
