I'm getting ready to order the Gigabyte UD2H mobo and AMD 630 Propus Quad cpu. Can anyone suggest a 4gb kit (2x2gb) DDR3-1600 ram that would be compatible with that Gigabyte mobo?

I was going to get a GSKill DDR3-1600 ram but I like Mushkin ram since I run it in my Q9550 system.

Gigabyte UD2H mobo,

AMD 630 Propus Quad core cpu,

I'd appreciate any comments/advice. Thanks in advance.

Hopes to hear from the MushkinSean.

^^Thanks for the reply! My budget is only $110.00 for the DDR3-ram. Any other suggestions? Perhaps from MushkinNick?

Mushkin ftw

Keep in mind some AMD systems won't run 1600mhz RAM stable due to IMC issues; you may have to clock it down to 1333 or so, but you can tighten the timings from there. That's what I do.

Thanks for all the replies.


Now I'm interested in this Mushkin DDR3-1600 ram:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820226075

It's also in the deal section with the special promo code for OCN. But since I'm in Hawaii it's only $1.56 difference in price compared to Newegg when you factor in the 2 day fedex shipping cost. Newegg also has a Mushkin $10.00 MIR.

How would that Mushkin ram be in comparison to GSkill DDR3-1600 ram?

Which is better for overclocking the Mushkin DDR3-1600 or GSkill DDR3-1600? The Mushkin redlines is over my budget.

I'd appreciate any comments/advice. As always thanks in advance.

Thanks again Tator Tot!

While I have no idea what the other memory will do, the 996744 kit should be able to overclock to the DDR3-1700 range at CL8, assuming you get a good memory controller in your CPU.
As xd_1771 said, some AM3 CPUs have difficulty with DDR3-1600.

On the 1333 memory multi, Gigabyte calls it x6.66, you should have no issues with CL7.
AMDs for the most part work better with tighter ram timings compared to higher frequency, especially if you get the CPU-NB frequency to the 2400-2600MHz range.

The Mushkin kit's running better IC's (Elipda Hyper's) while the G.Skills have Winbind or PSC IC's on them.

Those Ripjaws atleast.

Would this DDR3-1333 be a better set than the DDR3-1600 set for the AMD 630 Propus quad cpu & Gigabyte UD2H mobo?

Thanks then I'll be ordering the 996744 kit of DDR3-1600 kit.
