Need some RAM for this BD board

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I' m thinking about buying the GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5 motherboard.
But I need some good RAM.
What do you guys recommend?
Thinking about 4GB for now.
Though I want to go up to 8GB in the future.
Thanks in advance.

I would look for some 2x2gb 1866 ram.

Or, if you were to get some low latency, low voltage 1600 you could overclock easily to 1866 when bd comes out.

I would recommend http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231321

when they are back in stock.

see my existing thread about Bulldozer and RAM. Its hard to say at this point because all existing AMD chips are based on an architecture from 2003 and BD will be the first real change since then. Until we get some benchmarks its really a crapshoot.

That said, AMD has indicated that BD will have native support for 1866Mhz RAM so expect it to take full advantage of the available bandwidth. As i understand it previous AMD chips couldnt handle the higher clocking so you needed really tight timings to make up for it. If AMD has addressed this, the game could change for AMD RAM.

Lastly, it *may* be worthwhile to see what AMD is releasing as "Radeon RAM". they just announced their own line of (probably rebranded from crucial or someplace) RAM and its -possible- that they may have this specificially optimized for BD.

As for me personally i'm gambling that with 8 cores and shared L1 and L2 cache, BD will require lots of bandwidth and like current SB chips will be ok with loose timings. i went with 8GB of 2133Mhz G.Skill Ripjaws set at CAS 11. bundled Newegg special.

EDIT: oh and as always get the most module density you can afford. better to have 2x 4Gb than 4x 2Gb, this way you'll always have room to expand.
