Guru3d's review said the board will last you a long time although i could've swore i read that the refresh of bulldozer would require a new socket, though i might be mistaken. As far as memory it doesn't seem to picky. My Mushkin Blackline DDR3 2000 registered just fine, even though it's not listed in the manual.

Lol, I know you love them. But I was asking for the clearance of the RAM, because I am going to put my Xiggy DK vertically and was wondering if it would intefere or not.

Thanks for any reply you can give.

well not all ripjaws have the same heatsink, so which ones you planing on getting as if they are the blue 2000's they are very low and won't be bothersome

Yes, they are very low and will not interfere with anything most likely they only stick up about a 1/4 inch over ram stick bare

BTW the ram that is made now mite be a little of a let down just FYI, it still works great but not as they used to when they were first being made! I think it is because of the earth quakes over in the Asian countries, I have just heard this through the grape vine so it is not a fact just rumor! (please do not help spread it if it turns out to be wrong) but just watch out for bad ram is all and higher timings needing to be set rather than lower timings on older sticks, which seem to be the case with mine as they really only run good at the sig specs I have them at

Oh, I have had these a year now, so I am quite confident this isn't going to affect me. Its in my current M4A89GTD Pro board, but will switch to the 990FX soon and hopefully sell that board. Don't get me wrong, the M4A is excellent, but wanting to try Bulldozer is the main reason I am doing it.

Edit: I am thinking of getting 8GB of RAM since my other computer will be used for video rendering and encoding. You think this is pretty much the same? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231401

due to amd being as cool as they are, well probably just need a bios update, and the 890 users will probably have to upgrade
