    IMHO, the 990FX Extreme9 on the high side and the 990FX Extreme4 at the minimun.

    I personally wouldn't go with less than the current 990FX boards. Which is what the FX series processors were designed around. You will find the power section on 990FX boards are superior, and that's for a reason.

    Yes, if only because the VRM section for the CPU are able to supply enough power for AMD 220W processors, without catching on fire.

    That last comment only applies to those that put a '8350, etc, into a $50 board with minimal VRMs and no VRM heatsink.

    I'm glad ASRock included this in the 990FX EX 9 information page, but might want to consider doing that on some of the lower priced boards, a reality check.

    That memory is not in this board's memory compatibility list. That means it may not work, don't be surprised if it doesn't, very common for memory not in the list to not work in a board.

    Also, some notes from this board's Memory Support page: ASRock > 990FX Extreme9

    Note1: 4PCS= Dual channel, supports 4 modules.
    Note2: 2PCS = Tested successfully with 2 modules.
    Note3: The O.C. mode is not guaranteed. It depends on whole system configuration and other parameters.
    Note4: For system stability, use more efficient memory cooling system to support a full memory load (4 DIMMs) when overclocking.
    Note5: The mainboard supports DDR3-2000 MHz DIMMs only when you install a 6-core cpu to the mainboard.
    Note6: DDR3 2250/2200/2133 MHz will operate at DDR3 2000 MHz when OC.
    Note7: AMD FX series CPU on this motherboard support up to DDR3 1866 MHz as its standard memory frequency.
    Note8: When overclocking, some AMD CPU models may not support DDR3 1600 MHz or higher frequency DIMMs.
    Note9: Due to CPU spec, AMD 100 and 200 series CPUs support up to DDR3 1066 MHz. With ASRock design, this motherboard can support DDR3 1333 MHz.

    You don't say what you plan on using this computer for, or the intended operating system.
