Intel guarantees 1333 (or so), anything above is 'not guaranteed by Intel' or, in other words, partners' marketing jobbie.


X79/SBE is quad-channel 1600 supported, SB is dual-channel 1333. But you're right, anything above that is up to the manufacturer to support, used in marketing, etc

ASRock tell me the Extreme9 is only rated to 2400 in dual channel. I got 2133 to work in quad with a set of GSkills.


Just as I finish writing about the board on the 30 BIOS. Lovely.


2133Mhz at cold start, always corrupted...and moreover need higher Vdimm 1.725V to run Quad at 9-11-10-30-214-1T....so not pretty to run daily.
