Hello everybody! Sorry for my bad English.
I have this pc:
AsRock b560 steel legend (ATX)
Core I5 10400f
GSkill trident z 3600mhz
Question:
If this cpu can run maximum 2666mhz, and I go overclock memory to 3600mhz. Does this work?
won't anything happen? won't something burn?
If someone can answer on russian, plz do this!

Damir070889, Thank you for posting in the Intel® Communities Support.


Just to let you know, we only provide support in English language and currently, we are using a translation tool.


In reference to your questions, "Does this work? won't anything happen? won't something burn?":  


The Memory RAM supported by the Intel® Core™ i5-10400F processor is, as you mentioned, DDR4-2666, which should be the proper memory RAM for your system:

It is not recommended to use a memory RAM that is not supported by the processor. Still, there are some users that decide to use it outside specifications, and it will work, but sooner or later, you might start noticing the system's instability since the processor is running at unsupported speeds that might hurt the longevity of the unit and the rest of the components in your PC.


Any questions, please let me know.


Regards,

Albert R.
