I want to find ram that will be stable and fast. Obviously there is no point to get this board to buy 1666 ram? (tell me if im wrong)..
I dont know as much as i should about ram timing/latency and frequency vs latency vs performance and need a professionals help on which ram to choose which will support the motherboard the best.
Here is a Link to the QVL..the list of supported RAM..this was updated 4-12-12
i am pretty sure there is ram that this motherboard will support thats not on this list since it has not been updated recently.
i completely understand that high performance ram for this build will cost atleast 100-200 dollars... Im find with 8gb or 16gb..i know 8gb will be more than enough..but dont really mind to have 16 if its not significantly more... Please help me..I need to order this build ASAP..got to get ready for diablo 3!!
I will most likely be purchasing from newegg.com..Thanks!!
