I see many people asking questions about AMD memory settings and would like to post this guide as great information regarding the AM3 platform and memory. It has been very useful to me, especially because I really couldn't run 1600mhz stable.
I wanted to underclock the R4GK to get better timings and lower voltage, but it looks like this kit has more issues.
I see that the R4GK is supported on the Gigabyteâ€™s list and the M4GK is not.
So I just wanted to get your options on these two kits.
