Does the FX-8350 support 1600 MHz RAM?

Jump to solution

I couldn't find an exact answer anywhere on AMD's site. It states it supports up to DDR3-1866 MHz RAM but I need an explicit statement whether my RAM is compatible or not. Thanks!

Hello paynetrain,

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Bulldozer/AMD-FX-Series%20FX-8350.html

One might find the information of processor similar or the same with AMD FX-8350 from the above link.

It supports DDR3 memory modules up to DDR3-1866. For the AM3+ platform, the memory modules could support from DDR3 800 to its specified model (1866). So DDR3 1600 is within this range! Speed could only tell one aspect of memory modules, but not all. So you'd better contact with the vendors for more information on the compatibility questions before purchasing.

Best Regards,
