    You can use any DDR3 Triple channel RAMs on it just make sure the voltage is 1.65 or lower.
    Brands like Corsair,Geil,OCZ,Crucial... are good

    Which brand is the best??
  3. Corsair or crucial. Check their websites for warranty in your country.
  4. Corsair is the best by far. The "Dominator GT" modules are the best of the best if you can pay the price...Anyway, the "Dominator" modules are very good too.
    An alternative is Gskill.

    I was told to make sure the voltage is 1.65 or lower. Is the dominator still ok?
  6. I have played with OCZ and Corsair and both are good(however Corsair one were better for me in terms of stability),other good brands are Geil and Crucial

    You can install 6 modules. The max. amount of memory is 24Gb.
    Buy a three modules pack to be able to run them trichannel. Nowadays the 3x2Gb pack is the best option although you could install 4Gb max. in each slot (but it's very expensive).
    Here you have the specicications of your mobo:
