As you can see only 1 RAM supports 1,2 and 4DIMM dual-channel, so does this meen for the rest i would need 4x2gb (4sticks) for dual channel?!

This is anoying me because i ALWAYS thought 2 stick of same ram in the same slots (blue/black) = DUAL CHANNEL?

Can anyone please help me on what ram to get for this setup in dual channel 4GB (2x2GB) please!

Thank you,.

  1. None of those the only one with a little decent times is the G.Skill 8GB kit and is a waste of money since u only need 8GB for use many adobe applications at the same time.

    Do u want something better? Go with this G.Skill 4GB (2x2GB) 1600 that are much better with fewer price.

    Yeah I know aren't in the QVL but that list is only a guide and doesn't mean that the mobo only works with the RAM in the list more if u can see the list u can find that not all the RAM works at the same specs that the manufacturer says.
  2. Thank you saint, In the end i havne got hold of the New Crucial Ballistix 1600mhz 8-8-8-14 with Thermal Sensors

    * Kit: 2 x 240-pin DDR3 Double Sided DIMM
    * Module Size: 4GB Triple Channel Kit (2 x 2GB)
    * Module Code: BL25664FN1608.
    * Rated Speed: 1,600MHz
    * Rated Timings: 8-8-8-24
    * Rated Voltage: 1.65V

    Should do the trick nicely :)
  3. Excellent choice I have the Ballistix Tracer 1600 too and are amazing at stock and OC.
  4. The guy i got these from said there mot even out yet :))

    "June 22nd

    Initially they will be available from Newegg in the US only and then elsewhere in the coming months. Oh, no rush, Crucial, we don't mind."
