Compatability fx-8370

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

A quick post just to be safe, does my cpu fx-8370 support DDR3 Kingston HyperX Fury Black 16GB (2x8) 1866MHz CL10? 

P. S. Motherboard - msi 970 gaming if that's important.

I don't know what applications you usually run, but you should think of getting a completely new system. I have a FX8320 and it's definitely the bottleneck in my system. (Gaming)
Your RAM kit costs about 80€. You get a DDR4 2x8 GB 3000MHz CL15 for exactly the same money. 

 

But the kit that you've mentioned shouldn't make any problems.

100% compatible.  The only issue would be the motherboard support for that frequency of RAM but I doubt that's an issue.

 

Also note, FX CPU's do not benefit from higher frequency RAM.  I have tested this from 1600mhz through 2133mhz DDR3 kits.  Margin of error results both ways during synthetic benchmarks.
