I was looking at this gskill ram that had a cas 6 latency, but then I read it's only for intel chips.

So, what's the best 8gh for an fx4170? (and does anyone know of any reviews for this cpu?)

Compatible with Intel P55 & AMD Phenom II/Llano platforms Intel XMP ready

it will work fine with an AMD based system, memory brand isnt specific to CPU brand, thats mostly just there as a gimmick to get people to buy it. Intel right now is the more popular CPU, all their saying is theyve tested it with intel CPUs and it works fine, but as long as your motherboard supports DDR3 it should work. Wouldnt hurt to double check the motherboard compatibility list, but I foresee no problems using those ram chips in an AMD build.

MB should work with it. But I'm not sure the latency works as advertised with AMD cpu's as it would with intel cpu's.

Shouldnt be any problem there either-you may have to manually change the latencys, but they should still run just as tight.
