I Recently purchased a M4A88T-M Motherboard with a AMD Athlon tm II (ADX44DWFK 32GI) CPU. I am unsure

what DDR3 Dimms to use as on the back of the box it states that the AMD 100 & 200 series CPU's

support up to DDR3 1333mhz with the ASUS motherboard. In the instructions the frequencys go up to

1800mhz DDR3's. I'm confused. Should I use up to 1333mhz or can I go up to 1800mhz. I have just

ordered DDR3 1600mhz before noticing what was on the box.

The 1600's will work fine defaulted to 1333 speeds, but depending on the motherboard you may need to overclock either the HTT or the memory multiplier to get them up to 1600 speeds.

A C2 cpu may not support 8gb of 1333mhz!
OP has not a C3 of DDR3-1600?
Most 1333mhz RAM defaults CL:9 and should support 4gb automatically.
