It only supports some very specific ddr3 memory though.

all right just wondering cause on one of linus's videos he said skylake (i5 6600k and 6700k e.c.t) only support up to 2133mhz ram and I want onto their site and it seems to check out. I am just wondering would I have to use xmp profileing too tell it to go up to the rams actuall speed.

this is the board I have in mind http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-gaz170mxgaming5 it supports ddr4 and has a 1151 chip (for skylake) and the cpu supports ddr4 I was just wondering If The chip (which can support ddr4) can support any more than 2133mhz ram ddr4 and can I use xmp profiling to get the ram up to it reccomended speed or does the cpu not support this.
