Memories for the Asus Crosshair IV Extreme


Recommended Posts



I did ask the ASUS community for some compatible memories from Corsair. They only could give me a non guaranteed list.


So my question:


Which memories are compatible with the new ASUS Crosshair IV Extreme?


I don't mean the slot compatibility, I mean the compatibility with this board only.


I want to overclock my system with this board and with Corsair memories, so I need a guarantee about the compatibility.


Thanks in advanche

The Corsair Memory Finder on the top right side of the Corsair Home Page lists the following compatible memory for the Asus Crosshair IV mobo.




If your Asus mobo is properly built to AMD specs, any of the Corsair tested and approved Phenom II memory should work fine.

I know the Memory Finder but I need "guaranteed" memories for the Asus Crosshair IV Extreme. Asus did say, that Corsair doesn't have any guaranteed memories for this motherboard.


The second link is very useful. Many thanks

Corsair RAM is 100% tested and confirmed for compatibility. That's about all anyone can do. If you have a finicky mobo that's not quite to specs or a memory controller that doesn't play nice, you can experience issues with one RAM and not another. About all that you can do is pick tested, compatible memory and try it. There are no guarantees in life except death and taxes. ;):

There are quite a few Corsair modules not listed in the "current" RAM list as it is always changing based on production.


The CMP4GX3M2B1600C8 Dominator RAM has worked well for me and other folks.

Thank you but this Corsair RAM has only 2x2 GB. I need 2x4 at least (for video enconding).

I could use the 2x4 GB like this


Corsair XMS3 Dominator DIMM Kit 8GB PC3-12800U CL9-9-9-24 (DDR3-1600) (CMP8GX3M2A1600C8)


or this


Corsair XMS3 Dominator GT DIMM Kit 8GB PC3-14900U CL9-10-9-27 (DDR3-1866) (CMT8GX3M2A2000C9)


I hope, they will be in the Ram list or I must buy those Rams.


Corsair XMS3 DIMM Kit 8GB PC3-16000U CL9-10-9-27 (DDR3-2000) (CMX8GX3M2A2000C9)


I saw some users from xs.org, which use some Corsair RAM but they didn't say the code.
