Urgent help needed (which RAM to choose)

Motherboard: Asus m5a99x evo

Cpu: fx 8150

first question. Can I use 4 modules of same 4gb Ram stick together to make it 16gb? Also can i use two same 8gb ram kits together to make 16gb with the m5a99x board?


Second question: If I can use 4 same 4gb kits together then which one should i choose Corsair XMS3 4gb 1600mhz or G.skill RipjawsX 4gb 1600mhz. Corsair is cheaper wherereas g.skill looks better. But performance and compatiability wise which one would be better for m5a99x evo board?

  1. OK, u need this -> 4 x DIMM, Max. 32GB, DDR3

    2133(O.C.)/1866/1600/1333/1066 MHz ECC, Non-ECC,

    Un-buffered Memory

    Dual Channel Memory Architecture

    Those RAM sticks are good for your board.
  2. Nice products you listed there but my first question is still unanswered. Can I put two gskill sniper 8 gb (2x4gb) kits together in my m5a99x board to make them 16gb of total ram? Please answer quickly
  3. Yes, of course. Its designed for that.
  4. Best answer
    As long as it is the same, its all good.

    The best would be 1 kit, but in 99% all will work just fine : )

    With a BIOS that correctly determines the slowest common settings, any DIMM should work with any other DIMM as long as all ICs involved can correctly handle the extra bus load.
