Is this type of RAM good?

I'm building my PC and I need help with the RAM.
So, this is what my PC would look like:
CPU: AMD FX-6350(bought)
Mobo:Asrock 970 Extreme3 R2.0(bought)
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7850(need to buy)

So, is this RAM good? "Kingston HyperX Red 8GB Kit 2x4GB DDR3 1600MHz CL9 XMP"
Here's the link (it's in my own language, not in english, but you will understand): http://www.dc-shop.ro/memorii/memorie-kingston-hyperx-red-8gb-kit-2x4gb-ddr3-1600mhz-cl9-xmp-l/
If you need me to translate something for you I'll help.
But, I will state the obious:
Tip memorie= What DDR it is(in this case, DDR3)
Frecventa=Frequency
Capacitate=Capacity(in this case 8 GB)
Module Memorie=Memory Modules(in this case 2x4GB)
CAS...the same word from english
Altele: other things(in this case XMP)
And...can somebody explain me what is XMP?
So, is this RAM good? I sent the link so you can see the photo and tell me if it's worth the price in which case it's $105.32...but remeber that in my country everything si more expensive than in other countries(like USA).

  1. Thank you for the translation ;)

    well the RAM is good for sure, but look out for something which is less expensive with same latency i.e. (CL 9). That will be a good deal.

    The RAM is fine. A little expensive by US standards...but as you said if things are more expensive in your country that might not mean much.

    XMP stands for extreme memory profile. It is simply a feature that allows for easy overclocking of RAM. XMP profiles are stored in the DIMMs themselves. When you install them and boot up your computer, the motherboard's BIOS (if it supports XMP) reads the profile and automatically adjusts RAM settings like frequency, timings, voltage, etc. according to how the manufacturer suggests the RAM should be run with no extra manual input.
  3. Just make sure its 240-pin for desktop RAM.
  4. To IAMEXTREME...this is the cheapest CL9 RAM....=)) Normaly I looked for more...the ones from Corsair are a lot more expensives...and I don't trust Zeppeling...but...I didn't look for ones with higher frequency..but they are surely more expensive. Thanks!
