    Default OC Formula Supported RAM

    Hi,


    I'm just wondering, I'm planning to buy OC Formula, but I'm confuse w/c is the best RAM should I buy? What do you recommend?


    The computer shop near me has HyperX Blue 4G DD3-1600 Ram (SKU/Part#: KHX1600C9D3B1/4G), however I don't see that it's included in the supported RAM listed here ASRock > Z77 OC Formula


    The only Kingston supported RAMs are KHX1600C9D3P1K2/8G, KHX1600C9D3T1BK3/6GX, KHX1600C9D3T1K3/6GX, etc. Does that mean that this HyperX Blue 4G DD3-1600 Ram who has an SKU/Part# KHX1600C9D3B1/4G is not compatible and may cause problem/issues?




    Likewise, I'm also opting to buy Corsair Vengeance (Part#/SKU CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8), it's a 8GB DD3-1600 RAM, and it's not on the list either

    The list is important, it does not simply contain suggestions, you can't just use any memory you like. You may find memory not on the list that will work, but that will be pure luck, and most people find that memory not on the list does not work. We've seen that many times.

    What is the "best" memory? What does "best" mean? Things are not that simple with PCs. But the only almost magic memory is the Samsung MV-3V4G3D/US, which some of us here use, including myself. Not on the list but you can throw it in almost any PC, and it just works, that is the magic part. Not fancy looking, no (useless) heatsinks, no XMP profile, but it works, can be OC just fine, and is cheap.

    What parsec said, and if you're a regular at the computer shop you might inquire if they'll test some of their inventory of memory for compatibility if you were to bring the MB in.
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #2 - G.Skill RAM Configurator for your boardSamsung Memory for your boardLatest AMD Chipset Drivers/WindowsLatest AMD Graphics Drivers/WindowsLatest Intel Drivers

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.

    I used two sticks KHX1600C9D3B1K2/8GX and it booted just fine. Ran Memtest for an hour- no problems.
    And KHX1600C10D3B1K2/16G is on their list.

    Thanks for the feedback! I'll go and find that RAM (KHX1600C10D3B1K2/16G).

    Hey I look into your sig, actually I'm building up the same system as yours, though my core is just i5-3570k

    I accidentally bought a KHX1600C9D3B1K2/8GX and a KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX. Tried both sets and couldn't tell the difference.
    But the difference in 8G VS 8GX? X=XMP or Intel. B1=BLU color?

    This helps a little: http://www.kingston.com/us/memory/hyperx/decoder/
