Default Core i7 has unlocked memory multiplier

Another good piece of news about the upcoming Core i7 processors is the fact that the memory will be overclockable on all models, as it's running in a separate "bus" to the CPU. This means that those that already have expensive DDR3 memory kits have nothing to worry about, as they'll get the most out of their current modules. In other words, you can overclock and underclock your memory to fit whatever "bus" speed you'll run the CPU at, although we're not quite sure how the QPI will work when it comes to overclocking the Core i7 processors, as it's not quite like the traditional front side bus that Intel have been using to date.

Another neat feature is that you can run unmatched memory modules in your X58 motherboard, although you won't get quite the same performance as you would running matched modules. It's possible to run one, two and three way interleaving over all three memory channels. The interleave can be spread over multiple modules in the same channel, but the limitations is that the same channel can only appear in an interleave once. emid=35
