alank Posted November 18, 2010 Share Posted November 18, 2010 Hi. I'm buying the Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD9 shortly and I want to ensure that the 12GB (3x4GB) Kit, PC3-16000, Latency 9-9-9-24 1.65V, PN CMP12GX3M3A1600C9, will be compatible with this Mobo? I see it has guaranteed compatibility on the recommended modules for this mobo. I was going to by 2x12 to give me 24gb's but I'm nervous about spending an additional $400. I want lots of memory for 3D/Video work, but I don't want to risk stability. I've had no end of stability problems with the GA-P35-DS6 Gigabyte mobo running 8Gbs of CM2X2048-8500CSD, to the point where - after lowering memory frequency to its lowest - I am now only able to run 4gbs. I see it's not listed as compatible, so that probably a big part of the problem...this despite a vendor assuring me - I however should have confirmed this first, so it's my bad. Now for this system, your site states guaranteed compatibility. The vendor however states they can't guarantee it...although a different salesman from the same company said it would work. 1. I assume it will run at 12gbs successfully? 2. I assume that the stated latency is what I'll set it up for...ie, 9-9-9-24? 3. Do you think I could run 2x12gbs successfully? Or would I risk instability, BSOD, hardward faults, needing to remove it so that it too sits on my desk not utilised? I appreciate any feedback before I commit to this memory. Thanks in advance. ;): Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
