because the model you insist upon is for INTEL!!!!!!

CMD4GX3M2B1600C8 is for AMD.

if you buy the INTEL ram for your AMD you will have no one to blame but yourself if they dont work.
pick a model off the page Wired linked for you and you will be happy.

also multiplier and frequency are apples and oranges, two different things. you may want to google the definitions of both to get a clear understanding of the terms.
Thinking about combining 2 or more sets of ram?? even the same part# is not suggested, recommended or supported.

System Specs as of 6/17/10

Does that problem exist with the 1055T/1090T hex core CPUs?
I've heard they've improved the memory controller for those CPUs and they can run 1333 speed with 4 sticks.

Hi, finally I've bought the M4a89td pro asus mobo and CMD4GX3M2B1600C8. but I have the following problem running windows: If I don't enable the bios MEMORY HOLE REMAPPING setting I can't use all the ram capacity (only 3,11 can be used), if I enable the memory hole remapping, system starts properely but after few minutes it reboots without any screens or other signs. When enabled that bios option I can use all the ram. This Ram model is listed in the asus mobo documentation as totally compatible as I said previously. I tried using the spd or manual settings to see if something would change but the problem persists.
I hope you will help me.
