Advice: which memory for ASUS M4A78T-E Motherboard?

Hi,

I already bought the ASUS M4A78T-E and AMD Phenom II X3 720 2.8GHz CPU. Now looking for an optimal memory recommendation for this mobo + cpu combo.

Any recommendations? I don't need the absolute newest technology, just a reasonable purchase of 4gb or 8gb memory. Which vendor and which specs should I go with?

Thanks in advance for the advice!

    4GB of DDR3 1600 with CL9 and low voltage so it should give you some pretty good timings at lower speeds.
  2. I got some OCZ3P16004GK with that motherboard. Check anandtech core i7 memory speed test... it will give you the reason why you shouldn't care much about your memory speed.
  3. I just picked up that same mobo/cpu combo, what memory did you decide to go with?
  4. I went with G.SKILL 4GB memory and it works great:

    Good luck!
  5. I would pick a pair of CL7 DDR3 1333. For your board best go with ones passed ok under memory compatibility report (check your mobo model site for data) Else research what others with your board are running with good results ^^
