Recommended Memory for M5A99X + FX 8350


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!


Im Ofesad from argentina.

Im upgrading my pc, so I already bought a AMD FX8350 + Asus M5A99X EVO R 2.0 motherboard.


The question I have is:

I wanna put 16gb of ram. (2x8gb).

Running at 1600mhz stable.

I see that there's too much information over the internet, but, also, many problems with configuration.

So, what memory kits would you recommend?


Sadly, here, in Argentina, I dont have a lot of options (Kingston, Gskill, Corsair, mostly). In fact, finding a 2x8gb kit it's quite difficult.


I was browsing and a local store has the CMY16GX3M2A1866C9 and CMY16GX3M2A1600C9 for almost the same price.

That, of course, would be my first option, but still I wanna ask you what would you recommend?


I have been overclocking other pcs but this time I would like to not deal with all the problems and issues related with the stability and running tests.

I mean, if you say that some other sticks would work even better or have a better "compatibility" with the mb/processor to get 1600mhz, I will try to get those memory kits.


Thank you for reading, Ill be expecting your comments and ideas.




Ps: sorry for my bad english :p:

Thank you guys!


I just found a local store that also has the CMZ16GX3M2A1866C9, more expensive than the other (i dont know why).


Is there a real difference between the Vengeance and the Vengeance Pro?

What kit you think is best to get a easier and faster stable and working gig?


Thank you!
