Hey. I'm not sure if my motherboard can support RAM

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am going to upgrade my RAM for a first time.

But I'm not sure if my Sabertooth X58 (ASUS motherboard) can support Corsair Dominator GT 6GB.

SPD Latency: 9-9-9-24
Tested Latency: 8-9-8-24
Memory Type: DDR3
Speed Rating: PC3-16000 (2000MHz)
Tested Speed: 2000Mhz

I just want to make sure if it is right for my Sabertooth X58. Thanks~ smile.gif

To my knowledge, if it's 1.5v DDR3 it's good to go.

Oh and welcome to the forums, when you get a chance fill in your specs under "User CP"

I found it in the ASUS manual (user guide), but it doesn't show the lists for 2000MHz capability. Only 1866MHz or less. It means it doesn't support 2000MHz?

I see. Thanks. I found it in user guide book from asus box. It doesn't show 2000MHz capability in list. Only 1866MHz or less and up to 1.65 voltage. It means it doesn't support 2000MHz?


I am still awkward to use this overclock.net. Still learning..

You sure? I dont want to make a wrong purchase for my motherboard. BTW I found it in the user guide book for sabertooth x58. But it doesn't show 2000MHz capability in list. Only 1866MHz or less. It means it doesn't support 2000MHz?

I am still awkward to use this website lol.

Any DDR3 ram will work fine, but sometimes the motherboard will make the ram run slower than the ram is capable of running at. This happens all the time and is not dangerous.

Thanks! I am forwarding to buy new RAM soon.
