if you run @ 2400 your north bridge will default to 2400 1.4v which will generate alot more heat for the CPU core /Socket I tried running mine at 2400 and all was good until I started gaming with bf4 got some random memory management errors and white screen so I brought it back to 2133 no more errors and alot less heat on the CPU.

My two cents...even though I do own a Matrix R9 280 I don't think I'll buy another AMD-based graphic cards. I ran a old GTX-based card with no problem what so system was solid as rock. Finally got around to upgrading graphic cards to the Matrix R9 and had issues with artifacts (until I lowered one of the voltages) and driver issues with random BSOD when the card is "cold".

Either way good luck on your must not be married eh 🙂

I'm running my ram at 2400 mhz. I do need almost 1.45 v on the cpu/nb under stress testing or hard gaming. Anything less than 1.42 v my system will lock up after booting.
Chris...Have a nice day.

check the qualified vendors list in the motherboard manual (chapter 1 page 11) 🙂

You guys think its a good time to buy ram now? It looks like the price for ddr3 is rising slowly.
Not sure if it will become more expensive as its rare when they only produce ddr4 in the near future or if it will drop as ddr4 is going to replace it.
