990XA UD3 compatible with CMX8GX3M2A2000C9


Recommended Posts

I bought this motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128510

and this Ram : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145325

but I went to see if it was compatible with my motherboard after I bought it and I couldnt find it on this link:


the link is from gigabyte website and you just click on America and it will pull that link up..

the model number of my ram :

Model: CMX8GX3M2A2000C9

I wish I wouldv'e found this link before I bought ram.. but in all honesty I didnt really realize that ram had to be compatible with amd or intel..

But the ram features says works with amd and intel but the corsair website told me it was for intel and newegg saying in the features its for both... as long as its a 2 channel ddr3 support and the mobo supports are:

Memory Standard : DDR3 2000(O.C)/1866/1600/1333/1066


You guys think I should be alright or Should I contact Newegg first thing in the morning?


I dont know if you going to need the cpu I bought or not but i bought this one:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103996

hi Djevik


I understand yours pain.

This is realy the fault ove newegg.com

They or clearly give you bad information about this memory.

In the case it neweeg fault u sould try comunicat with them.

i now they don't exchange produc.

but it is ther fault and they sould make they excahnge for amd memory

And with no transportation feed.

Just paid deferance fore memory like



Don't get ddr3 2000MHz It is bugy

Get 1866MHz

or 1600MHz it the most stable

hope this help

Sincerly yours

With the AM3 platform being so new and the issues they are having getting memory to run at 1866mhz out of the box , i would return them and find a set that is listed on the compatibility list.


In all reality the sticks you have should work. I just don't want to see you have problems with gigabyte if you wee to run into issues later on.
