Thread: X48T-DQ6 with OCZ3X16004GK or TWIN3X4096-1600C7DHXIN memory

    Default X48T-DQ6 with OCZ3X16004GK or TWIN3X4096-1600C7DHXIN memory

    According to Gigabyte specs the DQ6 board supports XMP;
    "DDR3 2000 memory with Intel® XMP enables new levels of memory performance."

    Can I safely try OCZ3X16004GK modules?
    I'm in doubt between buying an OCZ kit or a kit from Corsair (Twin3X 4GB DDR3-1600 CL7 DHX XMP kit)

    Which one should I best buy? The Corsair one is more expensive (no idea why, to be honest).

    FSB will run around 1400 MHz because of Intel Q9550 (E0) CPU I will use (for now).

    Thanks in advance..

    I would recommend Mushkin if you can find them where you live. They are the only DDR3 brand I have not seen issues with

    Which brand are you referring to? (Your link doesn't work, by the way..)

    Why would two brandnames (OCZ and Corsair) that are also mentioned in the Memory support list at the Gigabyte site suddenly 'have issues' with DDR3? I don't really trust your judgement on this.

    TWIN3X4096-1600C7DHX DDR3-1600 (DHX3-12800C7) 4GB Kit (2 x 2GB) 7-7-7-20-2T 1.9
    is listed at http://www.corsair.com/helpdesk/ram_support_b.aspx as compatible with the GA-X48T-DQ6 too.

    Also look here:

    and here:

    and here:

    Mushkin doesn't even make much DDR3 kits yet a.f.a.i.k., choice is quite small anyway. I doubt it would be any better than Corsair..

    Sorry about the Link, I forgot Search links are only good for a certain amount of time (All I did was search OCZ3*

    You asked, and I answered. I say this because it is true. And as for QVL lists, here is Gigabyte's and you will see they list only 1GB sticks for OCZ 1600 compatible >>>
    http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/FileList/...a-x48t-dq6.pdf

    Please do use the search feature here and first search for OCZ* as I said above then search about X48T and you will see what memory issues it has with what sticks like use X48T*

    Mushkin does make Many DDR3 kits, here they are >>>
    Mushkin - Enhanced Performance Memory

    4 Newer Models here
    Ascent - Revolutionary eVCI Technology has Arrived

    I am only giving you advice that you asked for what would be better or compatible so I advised you from what I know of helping here in 70+ pages of support with the mentioned brands.

    See this post and you may think again before you decide >>>

    I have no idea what your bief with Corsair is, but it is just plain nonsense:

    Customer Reviews Of CORSAIR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

    I have the kit running for 48 hours now, memtest86 tells me it's all perfect, and I have yet to experience instability.

    I have no beef with corsair at all. I just write what I see posted by their reps

    Thanks for linking to ram you have used in this board for the OP
