Go with 1866 8 GB unless you are doing something that actually needs 16. I haven't had problems with any gskill, but both are good

1. can you give me some links to the memory you are referring to plz? also i plan on using my computer for gaming. i have the pdf that shows supported memory for my asus sabertooth but i dont know which ones are ddr3 1860. i have the original sabertooth not the r2.

2. also im going to use a coolermaster hyper 212 plus for my processor. im wondering if it will get in the way of memory that has heat spreaders.

3. my processor is a amd phenomII x6 1090t black edition thuban 3.2ghz. will the memory you are referring have any compatible issues?

1. This is the best price in the UK. Not sure where you are.
http://www.cclonline.com/product/84734/MV-3V4G3D/US/Desktop-Memory/Samsung-Green-8GB-2x4GB-DDR3-PC3-12800C11-1600MHz-30nm-Dual-Channel-Kit/RAM0612/
I currently have mine clocked at 2060 but it can go very high.
It's superb for gaming. You wont want 16GB for gaming. You will get better performance from 8GB. The memory controller will be less stressed if you run just 8GB. And no game can utilize 16. Actually I've not seen a game use 8.
I used the Samsung Memory in an R1 Sabertooth.

2. It won't if you put the fan on the other side. Switch the mounts over and have the fan as a pull rather than push.
Or you can just mount the fan slightly high on the heatsink. I had to do that with ram with heatspreaders.

3.No.

Gskill
Corsair

I shouldn't have any problems with either the heatsink or the IMC.

@laurie im in the usa and i was asking about ddr3 1860. im wondering if the ddr3 1860 will have compatability issues with amd phenom II 1090t because the detail page on newegg shows up to ddr3 1600 for control features.

@solders18 the memory you linked to is not on the list for sabertooth. but i did find some. now the issue is compatability with amd phenom II x6 1090t processor. it says up to ddr3 1600 for some control feature. will ddr3 1860 work with my processor?

oh lol imc is the control feature. anyone else have any input for the imc being compatible with dr3 1860 memory for phenom II x6 1090t?

Woops... *edited due to miss read thought you were talking about fx processors*

from what i understand ( feel free to correct me ) but running memory above 1600 has a tenancy to make the mem controller to be damaged in the phenoms. some people have this problem some dont.... AMD has a warning about it as well. should be able to google it

because amd says Phenoms only support 1600 is why to my understanding AMD doesnt support above 1600 due to above reasons

most mobos will support 95% of memory, maybe not @ rated speeds but slower, you could buy 2400 ram and run it @ 1600 with much tighter timings if you wanted to, but not be able to run it at 2400.

I had a 1090T and upgraded to an 1100T, with 8GB Corsair Dominator GT 1866 memory, and have run it at 1866 with no headaches whatsoever.

Yeah, I'm using this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220635.

Not on ASUS's QVL and review sites were all "for Intel only" about them. Works fine and dandy on my system. biggrin.gif

This machine is a rev 1, it is currently running 16gig of G.Skill Trident X F3-2400C10D-16GTX with no problems, it previously had 16 gig of G.skill Ripjaws Z F3-14900CL9Q-16GBZL which also ran faultlessly. In the past I have used G.Skill Ripjaws X F3-12800CL7Q-16GBRH (1600Mhz) and G.Skill Ripjaws F3-12800CL9Q-16GBRL (1600Mhz) all ran faultlessly, I have been using G.Skill ram for years in a variety of boards and have never had a kit that didn't work. I can't comment on Corsair I haven't used their ram for years after having problems with some kits, but I have been told by a friend the Vengeance kits are very good.
