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?

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.

Thank you

Yes, 2x4GB will work good for the OP in dual channel.

As pointed out by GSkill, dual channel config is far preferred, can see up to 10-15% performance increase

Yes,,having another 8 gb stick and running them both on dual channel will certainly increase your system's performance
