Hi,

I'm hoping to get

GA-890GPA-UD3H
8gb ddr3 1600 ocz obsidian ram (4 x 2gb)
Phenom II x4 955

Will the ram be OK at 1600MHZ?

Yes it will be. That mobo is good up to 1866 on the memory if you OC it, so 1600 will be good

For AMD it is better to get 2X4gb then 4X2gb.

Usually it's easier on the memory controller. A C3 rev with 4 DIMMs at 1600 shouldn't garner any problems though in most cases.

Cheers. I was worrying that it might cause some problems but I made sure to get a C3 revision Phenom II x4 955. Do you reckon I could OC it up to maybe 1866?

Debatable topic. 4x2 puts more stress on the memory controller, requires additional voltage, and may limit overclocking potential.

2x4 lowers all of the above and may increase overclocking potential. It also leaves 2 memory banks open for future expandability, even though you probably won't need it.

EDIT: 4x2 may benchmark slightly better though on C3. Stock anyway. You usually have to push more voltage through 4 dimm's than 2 to get the same oc.

PS - I wasn't hoping to overclock by loads. Around 3.8GHZ would be more than adequate for me.
