Hi,

I have a Crosshair IV Extreme and an AMD 1100T 6 core. Last piece of the puzzle is the RAM. I went through Asus' QVL and every model is discontinued. The only one I could find is over 600 dollars (the G-Skill 8gb one). Which models are are available for this mobo? The rig will be used for hardcore gaming, but I'm only looking for either 4 or 6gb.

Thanks

Best solution

Welcome....

You can use dual channel DDR3 1600, but if you're going OC pairs of DDR3 2000 would be nice. The mobo also supports DDR3 2133 if you're using an AMD 6 cores CPU, but it seems u don't have many choice for DDR3 2133.

Here some suggestion
G.SKILL Ripjaws 4GB (2x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600 F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL

u can't use 6gb RAM since C4X doesn't support triple-channel

How do you know these will work with the Extreme/6-core combo?

According to QVL, those are for 4-core and 6-core CPU. U can check the QVL by yourself or contact the customer support.
