Noob question about ram types

Ok, here is the mobo I plan to get http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131651&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-RSSDailyDeals-_-na-_-na&AID=10521304&PID=3463938&SID=e47un1mi7c

Now it says the ram types are 1066/1333/1600. However, on newegg there are three diff types for the 1333. The types are pc3 10600, 10660, and 10666. Basicially, how do I tell which type will work with that motherboard?

    Not true.

    The speeds supported: 4 x DIMM, Max. 16 GB, DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066 ECC,Non-ECC,Un-buffered Memory

    Use either Certified {See Memory Support List/Specifications -tab}- http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=nlWYrI9wlNIYHAaa

    Tested {Example} - http://www.ec.kingston.com/ecom/configurator_new/modelsinfo.asp?SysID=63484&mfr=ASUS/ASmobile&model=M4A87TD+Motherboard&search_type=&root=us&LinkBack=http://www.kingston.com&Sys=63484-ASUS/ASmobile-M4A87TD+Motherboard&distributor=0&submit1=Search

    Good Luck!
  4. There are lots of memories that aren't in the QVL list but they'll work fine.
  5. "Solved" = No! While I appreciate the {Moderator} status and the OP notion to choose to believe @Maziar - this is really bad advice. I stated Certified {ASUS calls QVL} & Tested - either if a good choice.

    ^ Then I "wish" I'd quit seeing all of the Memory that "should've/could've" work with problems being posted here - it's driving me nuts. Even different "lot/bin" don't play together well.

    Example {same model #/different bin/scroll to "JEEEZZ!!"} - http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/page-280059_30_50.html

    I Strongly recommend Certified <or> Tested.
