132-CK-NF78-A1 4Gb, 6GB, or 8GB


Recommended Posts

I have reviewed the EVGA compatibility list here: http://www.evga.com/support/mbmem/


I have read both of these threads:

As a present, I just got this mobo with and Intel E8500 proc to add to my system. Some time has gone by since the above posts, and I am curious as to what results surfaced as to the best part #s to use from Corsair to run either 4Gb, 6GB, 8GB without errors or lockups.


I am a huge Corsair fan and would rather use your product, yet I am not sure for gaming which models ended up working correctly in 4GB, 6GB, or 8GB sets in your tests mentioned in the above threads.


In addition, on the EVGA memory list, how would I benefit from using "SLI Ready Memory?"


Personally, I would love to max out this mobo .... yet do not see 8GB on EVGA list under Corsair "SLI Ready Memory."

K, thank you.



So could I potentially run two of the Corsair PC8500 4096 2 x 2GB kits to get 8Gb total or would that not be compatible in your opinion?


I guess I'm just wondering if I am stuck at 4Gb total if I want to stay with Corsair.


And are these the correct part #s: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145197&Tpk=TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF

That is the correct part number. Also, that MOBO "should" run those modules just fine but, most likely not at 1066. The memory controller cannot run 4 up at that speed in most cases although there are some exceptions. It's just like CPU OCing, if you get a board with a strong memory controller it may do it but it is luck of the draw and cannot be guaranteed. So, what I am saying is that no one can guarantee you 1066 operation with 4 modules due to the potential limits of the memory controller.

Makes sense and I do appreciate the response!


What would be the difference from running these at 8GB:












Any benefit of using either set (x2) for 8GB total on my board given the issues you mentioned?


I am new to this so sorry for so many questions, just refuse to buy premade PCs since I can do it myself and have some fun!
