Hello all,
I'm working up a a final list of components to be included in my build. The list below, doesn't include my preferred disk drive or case. I have the case, and I'm waiting(trying not to)to add the disk drive, till final purchase date because the preferred is on back order.

ASUS Crosshair III Formula AM3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W
CORSAIR CMPSU-850HX 850W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
Western Digital Caviar Black WD7501AALS 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive
SAPPHIRE 100283-2L Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders - OEM

The case will be a Smilodon EB (for better or worst).

But I'm stuck at a impasse on the RAM selection. After a suggested use of Corsair, I went to there site and found this list of compatible kits.

Part Number Memory Type Size Voltage Latency
CMX8GX3M4B1333C9 DDR3-1333 (XMS3-10666C9*8GB) 8GB Kit (4 x 2GB) 1.5v 9-9-9-24-2T
CMG4GX3M2A1600C6 DDR3-1600 (DominatorGT-12800C6*4GB) 4GB Kit (2 x 2GB) 1.65v 6-6-6-18-2T
TW3X4G1600C9D DDR3-1600 (Dominator-12800C9*4GB) 4GB Kit (2 x 2GB) 1.8v 9-9-9-24-2T
CMD4GX3M2A1600C8 DDR3-1600 (Dominator-12800C8*4GB) 4GB Kit (2 x 2GB) 1.65v 8-8-8-24-2T
CMD4GX3M2B1600C8 DDR3-1600 (Dominator-12800C8*4GB) 4GB Kit (2 x 2GB) 1.65v 8-8-8-24-2T
TW3X4G1333C9A DDR3-1333 (XMS3-10666C9) 4GB Kit (2 x 2GB) 1.5v 9-9-9-24-2T
TW3X4G1333C9DHX DDR3-1333 (XMS3-10666C9) 4GB Kit (2 x 2GB) 1.5v 9-9-9-24-2T
TW3X2G1600C9D DDR3-1600 (Dominator-12800C9*4GB) 2GB Kit (2 x 1GB) 1.8v 9-9-9-24-2T
TW3X2G1333C9A DDR3-1333 (XMS3-10666C9) 2GB Kit (2 x 1GB) 1.5v 9-9-9-24-2T
TWIN3X2048-1333C9DHX DDR3-1333 (DHX3-10666C9) 2GB Kit (2 x 1GB) 1.5v 9-9-9-24-2T

I am not set on using there product, but I have been advised to use: CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 . It list support for Intel, but not AMD so thats thrown me a bit. I can tell from timings and such that its possibly a good pick. But the ASUS and Corsair sites don't list it, as far as i can tell.

The, CMG4GX3M2A1600C6 DDR3-1600 (DominatorGT-12800C6*4GB) 4GB Kit (2 x 2GB) 1.65v 6-6-6-18-2T , sounds to have really hot timings for speed. It's listed at Corsiar as compatible, but my vendor doesn't seem to have it. (looking up with CMG4GX3M2A1600C6 DDR3-1600 ). This I might be interested in. Idk

Two others;
CORSAIR DOMINATOR-GT 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMG4GX3M2B1600C7
CORSAIR DOMINATOR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMD4GX3M2B1600C8

Are they all compatible,
should I get a matched 8g set to ensure good times, instead of 4g? I'm noobish as to the full impact of the selection.
Any help, would be greatly appreciated.

today, typically, memory is pretty universal. the memory listed on the compatible lists means that thats the ones they have tried and know work but with the vast majority of memory out there they dont test it all. if its not on the compatible list it doesnt mean its not just that they cant garentee that it is. Corsair makes good RAM and Ive seen it used with both AMD and intel processors with no problem whatsoever. However, if it were me building it, I would use Patriot. it is on the support list for that board, and it is every bit as good as corsair, and is generally a little cheaper. I use patriot in all my builds, Ive even used it in builds where patriot wasnt on the compatible list and it has always worked wonderful.

Thanks, I have been trying to learn up on all the components as I go. But it seams RAM is one of those components that every body has a favorite brand of. Then of course you go to each of there sites and your bombarded with look at our, newest and all.
I'm just trying to make her sweet. I've been running the box in my sig for years now and a 400mhz windows98 rig before that (still runs w/ voodoo card). Ive got lots of old out dated rigs now and really would like a stomper. Budget being what it is, a full blown Intel box is out of the question so here I am, pushing the AMD line, hoping for a gaming / home rig, that I wont be cryin about More/Better RAM later for.
Thanks for the look and the great insight.

Generally unless your planning on overclocking the snot out of your processor (which picking the black edition processor and the crosshair motherboard you might be). Then memory selection is not of importance. If you are then you want to match your ram with the fastest clock speed you will be running your processor at or choose memory that is made for overclocking. Generally memory made for overclocking will have heat spreaders and support higher voltages and allow faster then stock speeds without causing errors. More information on overclocking (more than I could ever begin to cover here) can be found at overclockers.com

Thank you for the link. I'll give it a good read. I haven't run over clocked anything yet (aside from the old OEM OC that a VGA 6800 had). The OCed video card I had was real capable for its time. But looking at the possibilities, the new motherboard has, I would most certainly be able to learn and apply, any enlightened thoughts that come to me.
I do plan to utilize the platform, for as much as it has possible, with in reason. Maybe just to play,and set back to try again.
Thanks for the heads up on the general use of the high end RAM. For now, I think I'll go with, CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 . Its not the fastest timings I could probably achieve OCed but fast for now and seems to be stable. I'm going to load 8GB with two sets (or have back up for a bad stick) . Multi tasking and video editing here I come.lol
Thanks again, Don

If you haven't already purchased the memory kit, do check out what OCZ has to offer.
Folks generally prefer OCZ over Corsair or GSkill, for an AMD system.

They also have special AMD optimized sticks.

Here's one such kit optimized for the black edition proccy and the '790FX chipset' based motherboards:
OCZ AMD Black Edition 4GB

I haven't released the order yet, so ill look at OZC. But I mean to tell, There are so many options, wow. If I could try one or two of everyones favorite, I would do it twice just to say I did .lol.
Thanks,
Don
Thanks for the link
Have you tried others with your set up....
I just wonder, as others have pointed out, using DDR3 is fast at any rate. How fast is going to be noticable in anything other that benchmarking?
Reading hype at Corair said there AMD optimized was seconds faster loading some game maps and that when multi tasking with more ram you get a performance nudge, but realy a guy has to take a drink of coffee( or amp soda ) some time.

I would like to get the setup rolling well to start with so i'll look. But even on the linked page it mentions the processs to get timings. Recent reviews have said that the site doesnt exist. Have you had luck going to the site mentioned, and gettings timings down loaded.
The real OC method suggested most, is BIos based instead of "AOD". Idk . just askin.
