Best 16GB RAM for FX 8350 and MSI 990FXA-GD80

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys this is my first post so please bare with me. I have found alot of usefull info here in the past and thought I would take part in the forums. My question is what would be the Best 16GB RAM for FX 8350 and MSI 990FXA-GD80. I will be doing mostly gaming (I will be running 3-way SLI PNY 660TI) and some video editing. This will be watercooled and was hoping to use the EK 4 dim ram block. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
*By the way I seen that someone already asked a similar question but I did some research and just havent quite found the answer Im looking for .

I'd look into Corsiar Dominator Platinum if you want the "premium" experience, and the "best" RAM, but I am a huge fan of G.SKILL products, especially the Trident X and Sniper series. For gaming, you generally want more frequency, but if you do a lot of editing, something like a 1600mHz CL6 kit off of Ebay might be worth it.

Whatever is the fastest on the QVL list.

I have the same combo as you and it's been hard to get clockspeeds above 2400 mhz with it on the ram. I would go for some cl 8 1866 or cl 9 2133 rated ram.
Darn stuff is getting more expensive lately too.... frown.gif
