Asus Crosshair IV formula memory question :)

Hi guys! i've been reading articles on tomshardware for a while now and this is the first time that i joined. It has been 7 years since i bought my last PC so now that the phenom X6 has been released, I decided to buy a new one. I bought the Asus crosshair IV formula 2 days back and im ready to buy a Memory module. Could you guys recommend a good memory for this mother board? im thinking of buying the G.skil DDR3 1600 F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL 2gb X 2. Since this is also my first time building a computer i also have a question about starting my new pc with a new memory, would i need to configure the bios to run the memory or would it automatically adjust? thanks

    Your options isn't good since have CL9.

    This G.Skill Ripjaws 4GB (2x2GB) 1600 CL7 is a very good option for u.
  2. what's the difference between CL7 and CL9?

    I other words, with a lower CL u get a faster rig.
