Hello community first of all :D 
I'm having some hard time trying to find the correct RAM for a Crosshair IV motherboard. I've read in a lot of places that this motherboard only likes some ram sticks.
The problem is this...
Localy, i can either buy Kingstone Value ram DDR3 1333mhz 1.5 volts, or PNY 1333 1.5Volts ram....
So... can i use any of those?
(im going to use a phenom II x6 1055T)
Or should i have the ram imported? what are your suggestions?
Help plz :cry:

Well... can you provide a little more details on either RAM... mainly the timings?

I would trust the Kingston over PNY... Myself.

How difficult & costly to import? The reason I ask, is you are buying a highend MOBO & CPU and putting in lowend memory. I would rather see some Cas7 G.SKILL or Corsair in your build. It isn't a most but would better fit the "setup" :D

We'll yes, i'll have the mobo and cpu imported, so i went to the "best" local store to see what they got, and those two are the ones.
To import say....
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...(2_x_2gb)_240-pin_ddr3-_-20-231-279-_-Product
It'll be like $30 to import them.
For reference, both the PNY and the Kingstone are $75 for 2gb.
So... for 4gb it's almost the same.
That was an example.
What ram would you suggest? :)

I would go with either the 1) G.SKILL Trident, 2) G.SKILL Ripjaws or 3) G.SKILL PI for your memory (In that order :)  )
