Memory for Asus P7P55D-E LX?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just started buying parts for my next system last week (halfway there).

My current parts:
-Intel Core i7 860 (2.8GHz)
-XFX ATI 5870 1GB
-Antec P183
-WD 1TB Caviar Black (64MB cache, 7200RPM)

I've basically decided on getting an Asus P7P55D-E LX (Haven't ordered yet, but that's not up for argument in this post). However, I'm having trouble deciding on a good set of memory. I'm worried about whether my memory choice will compatible with the board, will run at rated specs (which I hear sometime are for OC only?), and will not cause cold boot problems if possible. The primary use of this computer will be for gaming.

I'm looking to get 8GB, but I may try out a set of 2x2GB first to make sure it's compatible with it. Have any of you used this board and can recommend some good 1600 MHz low latency (pref C7) memory?

Here's the current lineup of choices I've gathered (Looking in the 100-130 range):

G.SKILL Ripjaws DDR3 F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231303

G.SKILL Ripjaws DDR3 F3-12800CL7D-4GBRH
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231279

Mushkin Enhanced Ridgeback DDR3 (PC3 12800, C6) 996826
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820226123


None of those are on the QVL for the Asus board, which is why I come here to ask since the ones on their list don't look great (and seem to run underclocked, or don't support 8GB).

Any help is much appreciated!

This would be perfect.

Low voltage benefits, cheap, simply enable XMP Profile to set it up, just too good to be true. =P

Thanks mate, I did not even realize an ECO line existed. Really low voltage for that speed/latency.

Seriously considering it.

Yes, that Eco stuff is really good, but don't use XMP profile. Set it up manually.

i understand what you mean. but no worries even while you do not see the memory on the list, i also was confused as to what to buy when buying ram. they really need to update this list. but the asus p7p55d-e lx can support any memory profile that is ddr3 dual channel or not, i use corsair 16Gb total dual channel ram on this particular board i found it to be the best, even while this board can support much better ram then this it was most affordable, works well with all (i type) processors, from i3 -i7 (corsair xms3- CMX8GX3M2A1333C9) Max Bandwidth PC3-10700H (667 MHz) has the Intel Extreme Memory Profiles(XMP) technology. but the fact the qualified memory venders list don't tell us about the memory types of this particular board has me stumped, and i will tell you that i have tested this board with my Intel Core i3 CPU 550 @ 3.20GHz with several types of memory the best being (CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3) as well DDR3 SDRAM 2200 so i wouldn't really worry to much, this particular board can support any memory it seems, as i have tested it with several types. at this moment i use the CORSAIR Vengeance (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M2A1600C9 and it works just fine,
