help with ram spec on M4N68T V2 Motherboard

Im looking to buy this motherboard but i dont quite understand the memory specs below.

Does it mean that it supports DDR3 1333/1066 Hz but you over clock it can also support
DDR3 1800(O.C.)/1600(O.C.) modules??

I'm just trying to figure out which memory to buy


Memory 4 x DIMM, Max. 16GB, DDR3 1800(O.C.)/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066 Hz ECC, Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory
Dual Channel Memory Architecture
* Refer to www.asus.com or user manual for the Memory QVL (Qualified Vendors Lists).

Refer the attached PDF for refrence.

The asus site says
2 x DIMM, Max. 8GB, DDR3 1800(O.C.)/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066 Hz ECC, Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory
Dual Channel Memory Architecture
and not 4 X DIMM, Max. 16BG.

if needed, check also the memory/Device support on the asus page to view the QVL

You have the QVL already.
The motherboard is capable of auto sensing if you have PC1600 or PC1800 and adjusting the timings in the BIOS automatically (it will go through a series of apparently "false starts" while it finds the right combination of settings to work with the RAM you use) You can then adjust the timings to further OC the memory.

So it supports all these memory speeds
DDR3 1800(O.C.)/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066 Hz ECC

regardless if you are over clocking or not?

I'm just trying to figure out which memory to buy......i'm not really fussed about over clocking to be honest

I would buy the fastest ram It supports as long as it supported in standard use with OC

Yes, obviously once you start over clocking support depends on just how much you are asking of it but putting in sticks of DDR3 1800 off the QVL will be supported with no problem.

Is this question closed without alloting any points to the people who answered softley's query ? Also, the comment # 36557374 doesn't seems to be an answer to the question.

I would recommend "3) Accept one or more Expert posts as the answer" for the reason below.

Initial question by the asker:
Does it mean that it supports DDR3 1333/1066 Hz but you over clock it can also support
DDR3 1800(O.C.)/1600(O.C.) modules??

His query was answered stating the Mobo supports "It supports DDR3 1800(O.C.)/1600(O.C.) modules." under comment http:#36555371 with the attached PDF.
The asker was also informed that the mobo supports "2 x DIMM, Max. 8GB, DDR3 1800(O.C.)/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066 Hz ECC, Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory" and NOT "4 x DIMM, Max. 16GB, DDR3 1800(O.C.)/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066 Hz ECC, Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory"

The comment http:#36557374 is not a solution but a question itself.
So it supports all these memory speeds
DDR3 1800(O.C.)/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066 Hz ECC

regardless if you are over clocking or not?

And this query was answered by MASQUERAID: under comment http:#36557422

Taking these things into consideration, I believe the comment http:#36557374 cannot be accepted as a solution.

thanks,
Mody2579.
