Hello. I got lucky and acquired a DX79SI with 3960X processor at a great price . I would like to purchase the F3-12800CL9Q2-32GBZL (4GB*8) kit for RAM, but its not listed as compatible on the G Skillz website. They list the F3-12800CL10Q-32GBZL (8Gx4) kit instead, which I would prefer not to buy as its twice the price........ Has anyone run the 4GB*8 in the DX79SI?

This rig will be replacing a very hard working AutoCard station. It will be doing 2d plan/elevation renders only - no 3D. I'd be grateful for any additional recommendations.

I'm not planning on overclocking this as its going into a 24/7 business application.

Heatsink: Intel BXRTS2011LC
Powersuppy: Antec 850w
Case: Antec 900

Welcome to Tom's Forum! :) 

Intel and any MOBO manufacturer cannot list ALL of the RAM kits out there nor keep it up to date as new RAM kits come on the market.

8x4GB F3-12800CL9Q2-32GBZL ; will work fine
4x8GB F3-12800CL10Q-32GBZL ; will work fine

The Intel BXRTS2011LC, Corsair H100 {edit - case permitting}, Thermaltake Frio, etc all work fine.

However, if you're going to be running the PC 7/24/365 then only look at Gold or Platinum certified PSU's, even in area like mine $0.12/kWh it adds up and PSU's pay for themselves. Not knowing your setup in particular the GPU(s) 850W is the bare minimum (OC or small GPU vs Stock or 1 Good GPU).

Thanks for the quick reply. Good news on the RAM.

I'll check up on the efficiency of the PSU.
