    Default Memory Question for 890FX Deluxe 4

    Hi: I am building a new computer and it is probably the last one I will build so I am over doing it with much more than I need. This is what it is going to consist of.
    Motherboard: ASRock 890FX Deluxe 4<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
    Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T<o:p></o:p>
    Cooler: Zalman CNPS9900MAX-R<o:p></o:p>
    Memory: 8GB G. Skill Ripjaws DDR3 1600<o:p></o:p>
    Video: Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon HD 7770 1GB<o:p></o:p>
    Power Supply: SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W<o:p></o:p>
    HD: WD Caviar Black 1TB SATA 6.0GBs<o:p></o:p>
    Case: Cooler Master “Storm Scout”
    O/S: Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
    Now I have a question for anyone. The manual for the M/B says this: If you adopt DDR3 1866/1800/1600 memory modules on this motherboard, it is recommended to install them on DDR3_A2 and DDR3_B2 slots.” If I want to, at a later date, add 8GB of RAM can it be done by adding it to the 2 open DDR3_A1 and DDR3_B1 slots, or am I stuck with 8GB of RAM? This may sound Dumb but it confuses this old mind. Tricks like this should not be played on us old people! TIA for any answers. <o:p></o:p>

    I, coincidentally, just purchased this same MB and RAM and would also like to know the answer to this question. Also, why is A2 and B2 recommended for the "better" RAM?

    I contacted ASR and got a vague answer. They claim no matter what ram you use they should go into A2 & B2 first. They told me there is no problem filling the other 2 slots as long as you use a matched pair. Hope this answers your question.

    Ok, maybe I can help, I have a very similar machine. I am running 4 sticks of 2 GBs Gskill 1600 (8GB) running 1600 no problem. I would expect at 16gb, you should still be able to run at those speeds or higher.
