is g.skill sniper 8g x 1 compatable with sabertooth 990fx r2.0?

4I just bought a asus sabertooth 990fx and realized that in the manual all the memory sticks were 4g x 2 in the list of compatable products. I had already ordered a g.skill sniper 8g memory stick thinking it was a 4g x 2. So should I send it back and get a 4X2 or will the 8g work?

  1. Yes it is compatible,,that motherboard can support 4 memory sticks with 32 gb memory in total,,so dont worry,,it will support that RAM,,,,awesome choice though.Let me post the links so you can see for yourself too-your mobo http://www.flipkart.com/asus-sabertooth-990fx-motherboard/p/itmd4g9hqy6vwhje) and your ram (http://www.flipkart.com/g-skill-sniper-ddr3-8-gb-2-x-4-gb-pc-ram-f3-12800cl9d-8gbsr/p/itmd2rysgnzymxvq?pid=RAMD2RYRXMDFERF6&otracker=from-search&srno=t_1&query=g.skill+sniper&ref=0be0628f-eb9b-44c0-97aa-3963dac7a603)
  2. Dear there is no issue at all. Good choice of G.Skill. 8GB RAM will fit in your mobo and will work without any issue (of course if RAM itself is not bad).

    Happy Hunting!

    For maximum performance, you need another identical 8GB stick of RAM to run dual channel. Currently it will only run single channel since you only have one module installed.

  4. Yes, 2x4GB will work good for the OP in dual channel.
  5. As pointed out by GSkill, dual channel config is far preferred, can see up to 10-15% performance increase
  6. Yes,,having another 8 gb stick and running them both on dual channel will certainly increase your system's performance
  7. sorry if i bring back this old case, i just found it and cant manage to make this gskill sinper to work on my computer, i got the same sabertooth 990fx rev 2.0 and a amd 8350, all stock values not OC, i bought the 2x8gb kit (16gb total) and the higher speed i can set without crashing is 1763 mhz with OC tweaker ON and all the other options at auto except for the dram voltage that i set at 1,65 trying to get near the 2000 mhz, can they really run at 2400 mhz? this are the modules F3-2400C11D-16GSR CL11-13-13-31 at 1,65v PC3-19200 XMP ready
  8. Do you have the latest BIOS?

    The CPU only support DDR3-1866, you may be able to reach DDR3-2133 with some tweaking. Manually set the RAM for DDR3-1866 9-11-11-31 1.60V, then you can increase if that works.

    thanks, i was checking that, the ram modules where at a juicy price, couldnt let them go, but next time i´ll check the CPU manufacturer site before rushing to a ram module XD, you help me a lot, i´ll check those timings when i return home and post the result, thank you again
  10. i was able to get a stable system with the 2133mhz with timings 9-11-11-31 and the voltage at auto, if i see any signs of problems i´ll change to manual and set 1.60 v and see if that make it
  11. Great job, good to hear
