1. You can't use DDR2 in your motherboard as the Venice IMC only supports DDR.

D88, Intel's need to run 1:1 at least becuase they still use the northbridge as the memory controller. AMD processors on the other hand use a integrated memory controller (IMC) so latencies between the processor and memory controller is basically nonexistant. Thats why you dont need a high clock speed for the RAM as with stock RAM speeds, the available bandwidth is more than enough for the processor so the cpu won't be starved of bandwidth.
yeah once it was mentioned I figured it must be due to integrated memory controller that invalidated what i had said. You are absolutely right and it all makes sense now
