Best Memory For Asus Sabertooth 990FX with AMD FX-8120


Recommended Posts

I just bought AMD FX-8120 Zambezi 3.1GHz. And I'm thinking about buying Asus sabertooth 990fx board and bundeling that with following memory from newegg.com




According to the spec. This memory is listed as "Quad Channel". Will this memory work with my Board+CPU combo. This board does have four dim slots. I want to set the latency to 7-8-8-24. will it work, if not, what is the fastest and most compaitable memory that will work with my Board+combo. should I even bother with higher Mhz memory. I do plan on overclocking this in the feature.

It is also ineresting to note that Asus has the following memory listed in their compatiabliy chart for Asus sabertooth 990fx (AMD) board. However, the memory is listed as Dominator. Now I'm totally confused. which memory should I go with Dual Channel, Triple or Quad Channel. I want ver fast but stable system.
