Suggest best RAM for AMD X6 1090T and ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO USB 3.0

Last response: in Motherboards

Recently I've purchased

1) AMD Phenom II X6 1090T (black ed) processor
2) ASUS M4A88TD-V Evo USB 3.0 motherboard
3) Western Digital 1TB SATA 6Gbps HDD (WD1002FAEX)

Motherboard supports 16 GB of RAM and I want to purchase 16 Gigs. So which make/ brand, model should I purchase for *OPTIMUM* ('The Best') results??

I've searched the QVL from ASUS, but they've given only 6 GB ram (2GB x 3) max! No word about putting 16 GB memory.

Please suggest me best brand/make and model for RAM available in INDIA only.

Thank you for your support!

your motherboard supports dual channel memory. so getting 2 "sets" (2x2) of dual channel memory (2x4) would fill all four dimm slots for 16 gigs of ram (4x4).

honestly you would be good with just one dual channel kit of 8gigs. you would rarely use more than 4 gigs unless running a virtual machine.

looniam is correct, unless you're using VMs, doing excessive HD Video editing or SQL testing, more than 8GB is overkill. But if you insist, so be it. :) 
Before suggesting exact parts, do you plan on over clocking, or are you just going to run at stock speeds?

Thanks looniam & psaus,
Well, I've a computer lab and I'll use 25 nos. nComputing L300 devices on this server machine. Hence, for supporting multitasking for all 25 users simultaneously, I need 16 GB of RAM.

These all users will also use vmware, as a part of their curriculum. I'm also planning for *optimum* (means safe) overclocking. Hence I need suggestions.

Definitely not your average home system usage. :) 

I would suggest NOT overclocking at all as I suspect stability is most important.

Though I'm not in India, I am pretty sure Kingston and Corsair are readily available in your region. I could be wrong though.
