Hi, I would like to know which ddr3 memory is suitable for an AMD x4 965 cpu? or AMD cpu's in general. Basically, can I use most ddr3 memory cards meant for intel cpu's with AMD cpu's?

Play it safe and check the mobo manufacturer's Qualified Vendor List for compatible memory before you make your purchase.

Not a bad idea but that list will probably exclude about 75% of the current modules available on the market.

Not necessarily...but he'll be a lot less likely to have any compatibility problems if he does use it a guideline, and there's PLENTY of affordable DIMMS on those lists.

One thing i can say for sure is stay away from low voltage ram it does not play nice with AMD boards.

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

Get this G.Skill Ripjaws 1600 are very good with a fewer price.

Regarding the QVL of the mobo is a crap, if u take a look of the kits that are in that list not all run at the specs of the manufacturer.

Hi, thanks for your comments. I checked out the amd website and read the specs of the phenom II X6 1055 cpu and found out that the cpu only supports up to ddr3 1333mhz memory. I have decided to get Team Elite 3x2g ddr3 1333mhz memory. This is going to save me quite a bit of money.

Here are the specs for my new system:



Gigabyte 880GM-UD2H + AMD 1055
Team Elite 6GB DDR3-1333Mhz CL9
SAPPHIRE HD5770 Vapor-X
3.5" Int WD Caviar Green 500GB /32MB
2.5" Ext WD Elements 500GB
Cooler Master GX650W 80+
Cooler Master Hyper TX3 CPU cooler
CM 690 II Plus Edition with side window
LG 22x SATA GH22NS40
Windows 7 Home Prem 64bit OEM

That's a default setting for the cpu and mobo to post it doesn't really mean much other then you have to set-up 1600Mhz ram in your bios.
And you've just chosen the wrong type of ram, triple channel ram,that won't run on an AMD board it's for Intel 1366 mobo's.
Your mobo supports up to 1800Mhz dual channel ram btw.

Oh I see. I guess I'll go back to DDR3 1600Mhz then. Thanks.
