M5A88-V EVO Will this RAM work with my system?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
As stated I have an M5A88-V EVO. I'm building this guy with a Phenom 965 black processor and I'm trying to figure out if I can put in CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800). I'm trying to build this guy up and with my Noctua heatsink I pretty much have to get low profile memory. The website for Asus is a little hard for me to understand what memory exactly is compatible.

I just don't want to purchase this thing before finding out if it is compatible or not. Especially since I'm using Newegg.com and not just a local retailer. If you guys could help me out I'd really appreciate it. Thank you.

Memory works fine with that board- clearance is going to be tight so make sure you seat your ram before seating your cpu heatsink so your fans clear your memory

Thanks, yeah the heatsink clearance is exactly why I went with low profile. From what I've read everywhere LP should work just fine. Thank you guys so much for your help I found a really good deal for it on newegg.com so I'm going to pounce on it.
