I have an ASUS P9X79 motherboard which supports "DDR3 2400(O.C.)/2133(O.C.)/1866/1600/1333/1066 MHz."
My Intel 3820 only supports "DDR3-1066/1333/1600."
I purchased "G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-16GTX."
Based on the statement about the Intel 3820 processor, will my computer still operate despite having this G.SKILL RAM with a higher frequency installed? Will it simply step the frequency of the RAM down to 1600?
Thank you all.
