Hello. Does anyone have tested the real maximum frequency of ddr5 RAM that can be used by this processor?
Will 7200-7600 run?

Hello Bogodist777,


I wanted to check if you had the chance to review the information we posted. Please let me know at your earliest convenience so that we can determine the best course of action to resolve this matter. 


Still, I would like to inform you that, the Intel Core i7-13700K CPU officially supports DDR5 memory speeds up to 5600 MT. While some motherboards may offer support for higher memory speeds and enable them through XMP settings, these are considered overclocking and are not guaranteed by the CPU's specifications.


Regarding the specific frequencies of 7200-7600 MHz, this would be significantly beyond the official support and would depend on the individual components' capabilities, including the motherboard and the RAM itself. It's also important to note that achieving such high frequencies may not be stable on all systems and could require advanced cooling solutions and careful tuning.
