Asus Maximus III Formula and CMG4GX3M2A1600C7

Hi everyone,

 

I just order my new desktop (first one in 10 years), but now that it's in transit I read there might be problems with the RAM I've chosen for the MB.

 

The RAM is the (nicely matching) CMG4GX3M2A1600C7 - Corsair Dominator GT DDR3 1600MHz 4GB

 

Should I just return them and get some more compatible memory (like the CMD4GX3M2A1600C8)?

 

 

Thanks :)

 

/ Peter

I have the CMD4GX3M2A1600C8, was a bit tough in the beginning, your going to have to do a lot of tweaking. But u should be fine, and on top of that vip.asus.com has just released a new bios update and ive been so far so good. Just make sure u register on the VIP site and get the new bios in ASUS MAXIMUS III fourm.

I hope I will not have to tweak to much (never tried it before). Where did you find the new BIOS, I looked everywhere but the latest version I can find is 1105. Your RAM would have been my safe bet (a lot of sites has used them even with the Maximus III), so it would seem I just have to get the ones I have to work :)

I found a post on the ASUS board:

...and I got really scared, especially since CMG4GX3M2A1600C7 doesn't figure on the ASUS QVL or as compatible RAM on in the Corsair Memory Configurator for the Maximus III: http://corsair.com/configurator/product_results.aspx?id=1092663

 

I do hope they work, because they match the Maximus III so well :)

Hi Peter!

I'm so glad to hear that :)

 

I really hope they work for me too, where they difficult to set up?, or did they just work out of the box?

 

Also it shouldn't matter that I have an i5 750 processor should it?
