Memory Suggestions for Asus 990fx

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well, my first post and first appearance here, let alone into the PC building genre in nearly 10 years. To give an idea, my last PC built was an Intel P4 2.4Ghz system.... nearly T.O.L. at the time...

Anyways, I am looking for memory suggestions for my build:

AMD FX-8150 Black Edition w/Liquid Cooling
Asus Sabertooth 990FX mobo
Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow Edition case

Not worried about graphics performance right now, just want to get it up and running. Looking at getting a Corsair 1200ax or 850ax.

Primarily worried about memory compatibility and getting the most performance out of it. Looking get the memory up to 1866 and at 16Gigs. Asus QVL doesn't list any 1866 modules up to 16gigs. What has everyone else found to work near these specs?


Thanks a lot for any help and advice! Heres to my first "updated" build in many years!

Thanks! How is it for keeping cool? Should I place heatsinks on it?
