2 pairs of TW3X4G1600C9DHX

Well, I spent days trying to get my system stable without success. I bought an ASUS Striker II Extreme and decided to populate it with 8GB. At http://www.corsair.com/configurator/product_results.aspx?id=488952 I read that Corsair TW3X4G1600C9DHX is guaranteed-compatible for the Asus Striker II Extreme. Then I bought 2 kits of that memory. System did not got stable at all. I questioned ASUS and they said that memory is not at their Qualified Vendor List thus they cannot guarantee it will work. They said more: at http://www.corsair.com/testreports/report_list.aspx thereis no mention to tests by Corsair with that memory! I only got stability downgrading to 4 GB (2 modules). Now I have on hands some 300 dollars of Corsair memory without use for it. I really do not know whom to blame for this situation, ASUS or Corsair. Or myself. Sorry.

None of the above. No one has tested 2 pairs of that memory together and as such no one can guarantee that they'll work together at rated speeds, especially if you mix versions (ICs).

 

Any of the 8 GB packs should work on your setup just fine: http://www.corsair.com/products/corei5/default.aspx

 

Note that the memory speed will be limited by the CPU's FSB.

I have the same motherboard and ram as yourself. I am suspecting a corrupt OS that's causing my issues at the moment now. However, I did used to run 2 kits of Corsair xms3 1333 c9 dhx (4gb total). To run 4 ram modules correctly you either have to lower speed, or raise the vdimm above what's required. If your kit is like mine then they need 1.8v for 1600 99924 . My board had issues carrryin the volts across to the fourth mem slot. I don't know what your vdimm currently is, but you might need to give it a raise because of this.
