I just put my 990FXa UD3 together with the close out priced 8120 and tried the Ram i found on NewEgg. I put in 2x 4G sticks and it worked fine, but when i put the other 2 from the 4x4 pack i bought, it wouldnt even post, finally after switching them around , i got the 2 long beeps and that was as much noise as i got from all 16gig. I emailed them and found they are supported by the 990 series board, which i knew, but they only support the phenom II 955 and 965, which was news to me. they didnt even say they were supported by the thuban, 1090. i have one of those as well but didnt try. But, they also said I should return the package and get another one and issued me an rma immediately, before i knew they only supported so limited number of AMD cpus. I had looked and found nothing about this till after i got them.. No big issue, since i only had them a couple of days, i was able to send them back to where i bought them, as defective as diagnosed, somehow, by the Team Group in response to my email with the symptoms. I dont know if they meant not compatible with the full 1600, but as 1333, or they would pop out of the sockets and explode type of not supported. I just sent them back
The 2x4gig sticks worked just fine in the AA slots. fired right up, i had to enter the timings , but that is still necessary on all the amd boards though i thought they got beyond that by now. I had the 790fx and 890fx boards as well and was used to that.
