I am looking to upgrade the ram in my PC from 8 to 16 gigs, now according to the manual for me motherboard the ram speeds that are supported are 2133-2400 but if i use pc partpickers compatability mode it says that 3000MHz will work. Is this true. My motherboard is a MSI B250i Pro.

B250 can only go up to 2400 

If you get 3000 , it's not like it won't work 

But it will be set to the default speed of ddr4 

Which is 2400 or the maximum capabilities of this board.


Fun Fact: The Meshify c is the best case to ever exist.

JEDEC DDR4 base speed is 2133MHz.


Did you test boot it, before you built in into the case?

WHY NOT...?!

Some have a base of 2400

Either way it will be set to 2400.

So it will work. it will just run at a lower clock speed than its rated for?
