Does a motherboard thatt supports 2400 OC support 2400 MHz RAM?

Hello friends, I was looking as some ITX motherboards today and a lot of the boards say they support "2400 (OC)" in a fashion like this "DDR3 3100+(OC)/2933(OC)/2800(OC)/2400(OC)/2133(OC)/1866(OC)/1600". I want to purchase 2400 MHz RAM, but does 2400 (OC) mean it supports 2400 RAM, or does it mean that it supports 1600 RAM that can be overclocked to 2400 MHz?

  1. Best answer
    It supports 2400 DRAM but need a CPU that can carry 2400 (a K model on Intel) and that an OC of the CPU (MC (memory controller)) may be required

    I am fairly sure this answers my question, but just to clarify. I can buy DRAM that come clocked at 2400 as long as the CPU supports it on a motherboard like this?: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157504&cm_re=itx-_-13-157-504-_-Product
  3. Yes, no problem, Where the (OC) comes in is generally if the CPU (MC) may require an OC to run the DRAM at spec data rate
