Will 2133 MHz or 1866 MHz RAM work in the Aurora R4?

As I seem to be making an order for an SSD I was wondering getting some higher speed RAM for my beast.

I have done a bit of looking around on the interweb and found no clear answer!

Can I put in any of the above RAM speeds? I will be using 16GB (4 x 4GB)

Thank you AWO!

1600 vs 1866, you will not see any noticeable performance differences. Only a minimal difference in benchmark software results. I always say get the 1600mhz ram as it would be more stable. Until you can run 1866 or higher ram without overclocking it, stay with the boards max speed without an overclock.

I ordered Corsair 16GB (4 x 4GB) PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3 RAM - 9-9-9-24 - Vengeance Series should look awesome in the R4!

That is great ram, I have the same in my 600T.
Thanks Tommy,
I hopped on Dell Technical support chat and the guy pretty much said the same thing.
He was really helpful! - He indicated that over clocking RAM is not supported by warranty but gave me some options.
So I stayed on the safe side as there would be no noticeable difference - except maybe system instability.
No brainer! :cool:
