Specs: Windows XP, 3.1ghz/DDR3 -1600
I am looking to build a system with the Intel Core i3 2105 processor. The motherboard will be MSI H61m-P3 B3. My question is tha tit says that I can only use DDR 3 @ either 1333mhz or 1066 mhz. I want to use DDR 3 @ 1600mhz ( Tom says it the best performing memory ), Can I use it on the MSI board or do I need to get another board ?

Memory controller inside sandy bridge chip doesn't support ddr3 1600, if ddr3 1600 is used then the mem controller will underclock it to ddr3 1333. Make sure it use 1.5v
