I'm well aware your CHIII is a 790FX and was only trying to explain it will run 1600MHz (as advertised) if manually entered without issue.
The CHIV has the 890 chipset it will run 2000MHz (advertised as max mem freq supported) the same way.

Can't help with the crucial question sorry. Strictly GSkill here.

i can understand you being gun shy after last weekend. the bad stick of memory sure didn't help. redface.gif there may have been some adjustments to make
if all sticks were good when 4 stick were used but not unsurmountable.

with just 2x4 you should be fine with whatever you get at 1600mhz. it's been a long while since anyone has complained of incapability.

i brought the board back out of the dungeon and typing on it now with a linux os and the crucial mem at 1600.

brilliant and thanks to you both, and i was not suggesting any of you did not your stuff and had no doubt you both had plenty knowledge it was more for my benefit i pointed out the chip tbh, and i certainly appreciate all advice thats for sure, and uddarts yes you are right the bad stick last weekend has really done my head in and dont trust this memory anymore if i am being honest and just want to get rid now and buy new fresh decent memory that i know will work straight out the box nothing more, then i will set the bios up for it after i9 get the new memory installed lol.

And you just pulled this motherboard out and fired some crucial balistix or just crucial memory in it for information is very impressive to help on that level and as said before appreciate everything.
I realise that memory compatibility is more something we all went on about like maybe a decade ago, as i remember having to be very careful myself in choosing and getting systems working etc, but as also already said this memory just got me going with the issues to the point of just looking for some sort of confirmation which i am happy with so thanks again to you both.

i may buy from a uk company called ebuyer as i buy a fair amount of parts from them, and see they seem to have a few diffrent types of crucial balistix ddr3 1600mhz ram, but i found one thats CL8 which is obviously better than 9 so think i would buy this version here if you reckon would be a btter buy than the CL9 9-9-9-24 the timing on these ones are CL8 8-8-8-24 and the voltage is slightly less than the dominator which was rated to 1.65v these are 1.5v so seem superior and cheaper yeah?

yeah 8 to 10 years ago was spot on. it was a real challenge back then. transitional period with memory controllers moving to the cpu.

cas 8 over 9 as long as the price is reasonable. everyday computing, you won't notice the difference.
