Im going to be running a MSI 890GXM with a 1055t x6 processor and have read through forums and reviews on ram and biggest problem im running into is some people say they run into problems with running ram at speed of 1600 even after manually setting it in bios.

Im currently looking at these 2, the bottom one seems to have better timings but more voltage required. Does anyone have any experiences with mixing any particular ram that did fine with this motherboard. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated, cant way to get this system up and going.

Both are good,I would go with the second one because it has much better timings,and although the first one has 1.5v but 1.65 is good too

I would go with the 2nd option because have a better CL or with this Crucial are a little more expensive but are amazing.

You cant go wrong with XMS.

Of those two I'd go with the 2nd one although I have never used Gskill before.

That Corsair are good memory, but if u bear in mind that are specially for Intel (with XMP profiles), and the OP is running an AMD rig he could have some problems.
