Will 16 Gb of DDR 3 running at 16000 work on a GA890 FXA UD5 ?

Or is it like the old 939 boards where if you ran all 4 slots it will downgrade the ram .

  1. You should be fine for 16GB @ 1600. Your problems would come in above 1866...

    "To reach DDR3 1866MHz or above, you must install two memory modules and install them in the DDR3_3 and DDR3_4 memory sockets"
  2. I thought the rev 2.1 board could run @ 2000 . I just want to put in another 8 Gb fill up the slots , I use Gskill F-3 1280 cl9 , 1600 is enough , just want to be sure it works before I buy
    So 1866 will not work on 4 slots ?

    Doesn't appear you can OC above 1866 using all four slots. At 1600 you should be fine with 4 x 4GB...
