Asking about RAM / motherboard compatibility

  N Smith 23:23 28 Jul 2018

Does anybody know of any motherboards that would support 3200Mhz RAM; I'm looking at purchasing some G.Skill Trident-Z 16gb RGB 3200Mhz. However, I have been unable to find a suitable motherboard that supports 3200mhz (Only 2133mhz, 2666mhz ect.) -Thanks

The ram would need overclocking to a mobo that would support it. What benefit you would gain from overclocking ram is debatable. Here, on these boards, I think you are on your own but good luck finding perfection anyway.

You're going about things in the wrong order.

MOBO 1st, RAM 2nd, GPU 3rd. Cooling System 4th.

Should have read - MOBO/Processor 1st.

In your OP you did not mention that it was for an Intel CPU.
