Xfx 790i memory compatibility

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I have a question about the xfx 790i ultra. What memory is compatible with it exactly, I've searched through several forums and threads and I'm starting to get the idea that ddr3 ram currently for sale isn't compatible with it. I understand that 4gb modules don't work with it. I've read that this mobo requires high voltage ram and the ram I can find has 1.5 or 1.65v is this ram compatible? If anyone can answer this I'd appreciate it greatly. If this has already been asked and answered please direct me to that thread. The only threads relating to this board I kept finding are from 08-09 I ask because my ddr2 mobo just died and I ended up with this one.

The following are compatible with the 790i:

WINTEC AMPX 4GB 1600MHz

A-DATA Gaming Series 4GB 1600MHz

Kingston HyperX 4GB 1800MHz

A-DATA XPG Gaming Series 4GB 2000MHz (I was using these when I had my 790i Ultra thumb.gif)

Also, you can check out the nForce 7 Series Owners Club biggrin.gif

Thanks for the links, although, is my proc capable of handling 1600+MHz ram? Guessing the ram will slow some to accommodate what the CPU lacks?
