More about what
  1. I have Kingston HyperX 1600mhz 8GB kit and worked fine with Bulldozer. I know Gskills ram works the best with BD tho
  2. Really does not matter but at least get 1600MHz although 1866MHz is supported.
  3. Best answer
    it really doesn't matter much, what matters is the frequency and the timings of the ram. brand name just decides looks, head spreader, warranty and DOA % chance.
  4. I've been using the GSKILL Sniper 1866.

    Dead on arrival, AKA dead when the product was being shipped because thats when most computer parts can suffer physical beatings.
