Gigabyte's 890GX doesn't list much in the way of Corsair either, or maybe it was OCZ... Whatever the case it is just because they probably have a select group of sticks they keep around in house to test, and any more than that would start to be time consuming heh Probably why they never bothered to check if ECC memory would work, which it does in my 890GX. (No, I didn't buy ECC for that reason, I got it because 4x1GB at $40 I couldn't pass up)

it will work though the corsair ram is optimized for intel. you will most likely have to do some tweaking to get it to run at rated speeds correctly

shouldn't be an issue most ram cna do 1600 CL8 and one of the newegg reviews states that it works as advertised with his phenom 1090T. only time you run into issues with intel optimized ram is some boards are still having BIOS issues with PSC based ram and extreme clocking.

Unless his RAM is like mine which it's sticker rating is 7-7-7 DDR3-1600 :laugh: But to be fair, these are quite old sticks... If anyone knows what the difference in performance is on older Higher voltage (1.9v in my case) CL7 1600Mhz sticks vs the same model but CL9 (and like 1.7v), give me a PM! You don't see DDR3 1600 CL7 anymore and I can't figure out why that is :confused:

yours are probably D9JN* and that is not made anymore they are pushing powerchips, elpida and samsung @1600 cl6-8-6 now its the new memory thing. no idea why your rig wouldnt push those at spec never had an issue running any ram at those speeds.

Mine do 6-6-6@1600, or I'm 90% sure they do, so their ability isn't of concern:laugh:

I was just wondering why they went to relaxed timings at the same speed and less voltage, when Moore's Law would dictate that in the time that has passed the voltage should drop and the speed stay the same with the same timings :\ IMOUnderstanding at least

Chip design and elpida hypers do exactly what you describe and psc is getting there
