1st Time OC'ing and have a question about Ram mem

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Ok i finally get seduced by OC and start making my own toy to test and burn... i mean try. So i buyed a cpu and a MOBO to start with this, already buy the cooling and the case but when deciding for the RAm i have my questions.

The motherboard have this on the specifications:
Memory Supported: 1066MHz DDR3
1333MHz DDR3
1800MHz DDR3 (OverClocking)
1600MHz DDR3
2000MHz DDR3 (OverClocking)
Memory Type: DDR3
Number of Pins: 240-Pin
Number of Slots: 4
Maximum Memory Supported: 4GB - 32bit
16GB - 64bit
Max. Memory Supported Per Slot: 4GB
Channels: 8 Channels



Asus M4A88T-V EVO my motherboard and
1090T Black Edition Six Core Processor - 3.20GHz the CPU i got...

my question is, if i want to OverClock this PC i can only use 1800mhz or 2000Mhz rams?
if no, then which rams u guys can recomend to me!

thanks

Your going to wanna go with the 1600MHz RAM. I recommend Gskill RipjawsX 2 sticks and its only $70.

EDIT: You dont have to use 1800 or 2000MHz RAM for OCing.

having higher frequency ram would give you more flexibility..i believe that's an am3+ compatible board,no?all the upcoming chips from amd are supposed to officially support err..1866mhz..also..with higher frequency ram..it's not a problem when you jack the front side bus up..all you have to do is adjust the timings accordingly..the post before me ..he recommended some good stuff ..it's the max your current setup will do.However,if you want to change platforms/upgrade in the near future ::cough:: bulldozer ::cough:: you may want to go with some higher frequency stuff

The 1800 & 2000MHZ RAM on your board spec meant you need to overclock it in the bios for it to run at its rated frequency, as its not natively supported by AMD cpus presently, not that its specific RAM for overclocking lol.

Get 1600 CL9 = best price/performance imo. GL

Thanks for the reply's, very helpfull but i think i will go for some corsair memories since i have used them before and they have been awesome till now. Will go with 1600mhz for now since i will be playing with this rig till i can burn it... when i learn and understand a lill more about overclocking will go for something bigger like an i7 xtreme or so, but for now the ones u guys recomends to me looks kool. Thanks again for the quick and really helpfull answers!

edit: nm, just notice corsair dominators timings are 9-9-9-24 (lill higher) and they cost 2X the price of ripjaws. never buyed from newegg before (loyal customer of tiger direct) but i guess theres always a first time for all.

Hey now don't be trying to recruit just yet. The other team hasn't shown their secret weapon yet and who knows Ivybridge just might be worth the wait.

That's why we rec. the GSkill's,better price,better latencies.

I'd prefer to go to a bigger company though. Its only been a few months I believe since theyve gotten huge and then the RAM wars started.
