ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO - i seek your advice!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys here at OC.net
My first post but seriously need your opinions and/or help!

I bought this system 06-06-2011 for roughly 6000 DKK







As you can see in the titel i got a ASUS MB.
Also this is running a AMD chipset.

At the moment I 'only have' 2x2 GB ramm but started to get warnings when i play e.g. battlefield 4 or do heavy video editing.
I would like an upgrade and I also upgraded for an SSD (Samsung 840 - 250GB)

Now my question is, what can my system run?
I would like to max it out, but I dont want to buy overkill ram's if they doesn't fit the system.
I'm abit lost on the timing, mhz, PCxxxx, power and all the other OC stuff (even though I know all about page-files and such, im not totally lost here!)

But please help me figure it out.

First off, for ram I would recommend getting the same type of ram you did in 2011 e.g 1600 CL9 2x2GB. This would give you a total of 8GB and you wouldn't have to worry about ram for awhile, plus it would be fairly cheap. Either that, or you could just toss the ram aside and get something like 2x4gb or 2x8gb sticks running at at least 1600 and at most 1866. The board supports DDR3 so no problems here from what I can tell.

If you want to overclock your processor, go into the bios and find the CPU Multiplier, bump that up about 4 times and you should have 4ghz. If it's stable, keep it, if not, bump up the voltage 1 or 2 times.

Depending on the video work you do and how much ram the software uses. If video isn't your main use I'd get a 2x4Gb kit of 1600 ram. If you do a lot of video and the software can use more than 8Gb go for a 2x8Gb set but the price will be about twice as much. If you main inteerest is gaming and occasional video work go for the 2x4Gb set it will be plenty for gaming and still good for video work. Try and sty with CL 9 or 8 for performance

op, i have a similar board as you without the D. i bought mine 2 yrs ago used and it is still going strong. the rams i'm using are hand me downs from my X58 system. Kingston Blue 1600. the board set the right timings and everything at default. no oc'ing. 2 sticks of 4GB rams should be sufficient at either 1600 or 1800 speeds and the motherboard will set them to default settings.

btw, our boards are built for oc'ing. i've oc'ed my thuban to 4.6GHz for benching. just make sure you have good airflow in your case.


edit: just add 2 more of the same ram you have or make sure the 2 you have now are in the black slots.
