    DDR3 1600 compatibility with I7 950 cpu


      I was  looking at the specs for my I7 950 and noticed the listed compatible  Memory Types as DDR3-800/1066. In my PC I just built I installed 12GB (3 x 4GB) DDR3 1600,

      Does this mean the DDR3 1600 RAM is not necessary because the 950 will not be able to utilize it fully?

      Also can anyone recommend a guide to Ram, Uncore, and QPI speed and voltages

      I7 950 Specs page

      I also saw this thread on the I7 950

      Any help is appreciated
