DanBrokenfor Posted February 26, 2013 Share Posted February 26, 2013 Hi guys, I've managed to return the CMZ16GX3M2A1866C9 memory which was not working well on the specs mentioned in the title of this post and so I am looking for alternatives that will definitely work. I have in mind the CMP16GX3M4A1333C9 ram as that looks quite nice and has good benchmarks for 1333. I am sceptical about going for another set of 1866 ram as the compatibility seems to vary and AMD FX 8350 processors can only support two sticks running at 1866 or 1600, dual, but most companies seem to only be selling 16GB sets in 4s not 2s for some reason (hence why I went for the Vengeance ram in the first place). The Dominator ram comes up as compatible using Corsair's memory finder when I enter the Asus mobo, but as I've discovered the processor is also part of this compatibility check but none of the memory manufacturers seem to take this into account, or indeed the motherboard manufacturers when produce QVLs. For instance Asus list Corsair 4x8GB (32GB) 1866mhz sets as compatible, even though most processors running on this mobo would not be able to support 4x1866mhz as 2x1866 is the limit. Sorry I digress... So, would this ram be compatible/can anyone verify that they have this ram working under a similar spec as mine? Or any other suggestions? Looking for 16GB, 1333mhz (or higher if you can suggest two stick sets) DDR3 (of course). Thanks for all your help! Dan Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
