The datasheet for the Intel Xeon E3-1230V3 says it supports a maximum of 32GB DDR3-1333/1600. But isn't the RAM speed dependent on whether the motherboard supports it?
I'm thinking of getting this CPU and an ASUS Z87-A motherboard and am trying to decide on the RAM. There's only a small price difference between 16 Gb of 1600MHz vs 2300 MHz so trying to decide if the 2300 is worth the extra £3 or whether it'll cause problems. This is for an Ubuntu-based 3D rendering setup.
