ASUS M5A97 EVO - Recommended 16 GB RAM for Linux

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
M5A97 EVO.PNG 48k .PNG file I have the ASUS M5A97 EVO http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005584ZD0/ref=wms_ohs_product?ie=UTF8&psc=1

with an AMD Phenom 1090T 6-core running Ubuntu Linux. Also, I use only Noctua NH-D14 (big as hell) so I can't use RAM with big ole heatsinks (they just won't fit under the Noctua)

I do not game, though I may use it to test games that I will have programmers develop for me.
(I develop educational materials and curricula for gifted students and eventually wish to embed everything into interactive video game format.)

Although I am rather knowledgeable about hardware, I must confess I don't really know diddly-squat about what RAM to buy. I think 16 GB will be just fine (have 16 GB in both my other rigs), but think it might be smart to go with 2 X 8 GB to leave room for the future. Also, I buy only Corsair - though I will keep an open mind on that. rolleyes.gif

Also, if you guys are feeling really, truly, extra special generous with your time and knowledge, I need a recommendation for an ASUS (only) AMD Quad-Core DDR3 motherboard that is reliable but super cheap. Building that one for a friend.

Thanks - and just a word of warning. If North Korea actually does launch a missile attack on the U.S., please don't lose your sense of humor. thumb.gif
