From OCZ website:

That looks better; OK with 790 chipset, and slow enough let me rephrase that: reasonable enough speed (I'm conducting a campaign against buying ridiculously high-speed memory with little hope of ever getting it to work right!) that the on-DIMM SPD will work with any decent BIOS to auto-setup correctly... In addition, I only ever spec G.Skill RAM, and they've yet to let me down - I've found OCZ's to sometimes be a bit 'voltage-hungry'...

Any G Skill with Command Rate 1?

1066 is slow. Try at least 1600 mhz 8/8/8.

well my motherboard will only support 1200(oc)/1066/800

DDR3 1066 is slow and that's what you linked. Is your mobo DDR2?

look at the specs of the msi 790x-G45

You should buy the fastest RAM, usually 7/7/7 1600 mhz, and downclock it to match your mobo's limit.

I can't believe a DDR3 mobo is limited to 1200mhz through overclocking.
Is there an option for 1333 or 1600 mhz in your BIOS?

will it work good
July 14, 2010 4:16:00 PM

I dont know I am building the computer and I have not got in the bios yet
July 14, 2010 4:18:06 PM

The fastest RAM will always down clock to match your mobo or another RAM.
July 14, 2010 4:21:36 PM

really I did not know that
July 14, 2010 5:37:31 PM

so it will down clock automatically
July 14, 2010 6:29:19 PM

Your mobo says 1200 max so I bet any RAM will down lock to 1066 mhz. If there isn't a 1600mhz selection you may overclock until it's unstable. If you down clock your Northbridge and Southbridge then over clock your fsb you may reach 1600 mhz.
