965 BE Memory

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

My New Sabortooth 990FX Mobo and G.Skill DDR3 1866 Sniper series memory arrived today. Now before I tear apart my current rig that's running and put my 965 BE into theSabortooth and add the new memory.

Will the 965 BE be compatible with the new memory? I'm currently using G.Skill Ripsaw DDR2 1066 and have a OC of 4.0Ghz. I'm sure I will need to redo the OC which won't be a issue I can just adjust the mutliply a bit and bam.

But I'm still a bit confused how my memory will play a part in this. So can anyone tell me if I should be ok or will some changes be required and how do you suggest I go about making them.

yes its compatible and will run at rated speeds and can run up to 2000Mhz through OC just check link.


http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-reviews/43653-asus-sabertooth-990fx-am3-motherboard-review-4.html


or here's what it says.

"The Sabertooth’s DDR3 memory slots officially support up to DDR3-1866, which is one of the benefits of the 990FX chipset, but ASUS have also validated this motherboard for overclocked operation up DDR3-2000. The 2-phase power design for the memory slots will have no issues handling the load. We are glad to see that ASUS are continuing the user-friendly Q-DIMM memory slot design, which is clip-less on one end. The reason for this innovative design is simply to make it easier to remove the memory modules."

I already spent $170 on memory + The board to run BD at 1866 native. Why would I go buy MORE sticks..when I said I "just" got my 1866 memory?

@Darksoul844,

Thanks. I'll check the link out. I wanted to be sure before I pulled out my CPU and installed everything on the 990FX..haha

Let me know how performance wise if it better then what you had before to now because I'm thinking of upgrading to the same motherboard and BD.

Yea no problem Darksoul. When I can finally get my hands on a BD I'll be sure to post up. Only thing I'm a bit concerned about is well I will have 8Gb of DDR3 1866 at 1600mhz I currently run near the 12Gb of DDr2 1066 during editing. So hopefully the faster memory will have noticable effects. Rather excited...Now I just gotta find one of my 6 tubes of thermal past when I get off work..haha

I too just ordered 8gigs of G.Skill Sniper Series 1866 ram and will probably end up running them at 1600mhz unless I can OC it somehow. I already had the 1333mhz G.Skill sniper sticks but for $53 i couldn't pass up the 1866s!!!
