Best memory suggestions for Asus Crosshair IV Formula Mobo

I was curious to know from anyone who has this motherboard, or some other enthusiast what would be the best ram for this motherboard?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131644&cm_re=890fx-_-13-131-644-_-Product


I have the X6 1090T cpu and the motherboard sitting in my closet waiting on my decision on what ram to get. I plan to do some fairly heavy overclocking so I wanted to be sure to get the best ram for the best results.


Any suggestions??... :bounce:

    Help me to understand what's bad. From the look of his OC results I am TOTALLY impressed.


    @ Stag:

    Are you able to run 4.5G 24/7? Is that the max? Also, are you on air?

    Do you mind working with me on my setup to test out like you did? I would appreciate it! :bounce:

    It would be interesting to see if I get better/same/worse results as you with the same setup.

    Very nice!
  7. Check your pm box.
  8. Hey just bought the same setup and I'm also looking for ram...only I want 8 gig.

    Don't mean to jump your thread just same topic I needed


    Thanks
  9. You have the same setup? Motherboard too? I'm just trying to understand why you need 2x4g configuration.

    If you are going with the ram you picked out you can go to the manufactures website and they will have the recommended voltages listed for that ram. It will likely be on the packaging when you received it as well. Mine did.

    I finally got mine up and running today but I'm still not ready to OC as of yet. I have to get an aftermarket cooler to replace the stock cooler so I'm running stock ftm.

    It's kinda like driving the speed limit in a ferrari and not being allowed to step on the pedal, lol...
