890GX Extreme 3 + Ram?!?!? :( Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: February 27, 2011 12:37 AM in Systems Share cklsynt February 26, 2011 11:30:37 PM Hey guys! Just a quick question Corsair CMX8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i... or G.Skill Ripjaws F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 (Is it even compatible with AMD?) http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i... with a 1090t Phenom II x6 ASRock 890GX Extreme3 Motherboard http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i... Thanks! ^_^ More about : 890gx extreme ram wannaturnuptheheat February 27, 2011 12:29:16 AM Both are the same price. Both have the same clock speed (1600 MHz). Both are DDR3 RAM. Both are compatible with the motherboard: Quote:AMD Phenom II X6 6-Core CPU ready, AMD 890GX/SB850 chipset, dual-channel, DDR3 1800(OC) support The only difference is that the Ripjaws have a better heat spreader, and has a lower voltage. Go for the Ripjaws. joelmartinez February 27, 2011 12:37:12 AM Ripjaws runs at less voltage, that is the reason to buy it. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
