    The best memory (or fastest) that your system supports is 1866. Any of the mushkin memory in the following list will be fine for your system:

    Note: The Kingston memory is not suitable because it is 1.65 volt memory.

    what about 2000mhz ram ?
  5. I didn't see any 2000 memory listed on their QVL

    Update: I see in the specs that they do list 2000 memory.

    The only compatible 2000 memory that I found is the following:
    CORSAIR Vengeance 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory Model CMZ12GX3M3A2000C10
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233166

    Personally, I would stick with the 1866.

    why do u think i should stick with 1866 ??
  7. Because it is a more common and well tested speed. The 2000 speed memory would be pushing the MB to its tolerances, and you'd be prone to timing related issues. Eevn Asus couldn't provide a reliable 2000 speed memory kit to include on their QVL.

    ah ok thanks for explaining it to me , im currently using the corsair cm3x2g1600c9d6 (6GB) and would it make that much of a difference if i replace it with Mushkin Enhanced Redline 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory

    :)
  9. Whether you'd see any improvements depends on whether the stuff that you do on the computer would actually make use of the extra ram. For example, large spreadsheets and databases would use it. But just everyday tasks would not use it.

    As to the speed difference, there you'd see a tiny bit of speed increase, but it would be barely noticeable.
