Links to a site where you can download the Qualified Vendor List for your board. If you look at the tables of all the vendors, the headings for each section say DDR - (some number) Qualified Vendors List. That number is the frequency for the DIMMs in that section (higher is better). And that is essentially as far as I can help you with the technical details of the table, I can't make heads or tails out of some of the info listed.

 

If you want a specific brand recommendation, I probably can't help you - the few times I've bought memory, I've gone with Kingston and not regretted it, but there's only a few Kingston entries on that table.

I've been using Crucial RAM since I had an issue in the 90s where I purchased a kit that had issues with the RAM, RMA'd the RAM twice before I bought the Crucial which worked perfectly and hasn't let me down since.

Get a set of Gskill's, 1600 mhz and up will do, Tridents are top of the line but Snipers and Ripjaws z are also good
