All of the "tri memory" kits for the i7 confuse me. Whats the best kit for the above motherboard? Going to drop a AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition into it.

 

Also, if you think another motherboard would be better, please feel free to let me know!

 

My switch to Intel has been a horrifying experiance. Two dead Asus boards and a currently unstable XFX board (could be video card, or both). I did RMA each Asus board and finally gave up on Asus for the XFX board, which is now giving me problems. The Corsair ram is rock solid for now. I am not sure for how long the ram will be good, this XFX board is going to eat it. I am going to convert back to AMD slowly but surly. My overclocked AMD Athlon system lasted forever, stable.

Well then, only takes me 3 seconds to answer my own question.

 

Overclocker:

TW3X4G1600C9DHX

Normal:

TW3X4G1333C9DHX

This leads to another question which may not be able to be answered here:

 

Can the AMD Phenom II X4 955 run "stock" with the ram at 1600Mhz (for the overclocker ram) or will the ram be underclocked?
