GSKill has the best compatibility in my experience.

Their memory works in everything.

You could always go to the Gigabyte website and take a look at their Qualified Vendor List (QVL), Sato, and pick from there. If you do that you will be assured that the memory will be compatible with your board. There is a note on that QVL that states: Only one DIMM per channel is supported for DDR3-1866Mhz and higher speed using an AM3+ CPU. Another option for you would be to visit the NewEgg website and read the reviews on that board to see what the other customers are using. Good luck!

Thanks Super Dave,

but in the list of reports that are present with the frequency to 1866MHz, I am not convinced I see a little generic. so eh seen some other of the aforementioned chew.

Here are links to the reports I want to buy, to see are saying:

eunoia hello.

giving thanks for your help but let them know all the reason why I'm looking for the pefect memories for my motherboard Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5, AMD FX 8120 using my FSB 1866MHz under.

is because I have installed 4 memories of this type:

ok Eunoia , thanks again for the help they offer me.

with relation to corsair do not think he oportudidad other two occasions because I go so with such manufacture. G.Skill prefer and change. Now I wonder what you think of these Select:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004JM1ZG8/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?ie=UTF8&smid=A2C3SMXXIDC93V

perhaps the look 16gb is not much difference in price and taketh encuenta latency and voltage as I indicate.

 

I'm honest but imagine not only be able to use the 1866MHz frequency ranueras I only use 2 RAM.

I guess you know well my motherboard Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5.

to tell him that i was trying to see if I could and definitely set the frequency to 1866MHz for the memory Corsair GT Domination.

achieve perfectly well do you start Windows 7 x64, after doing some direct evidence to frizz and memories stay proboco windows blue screen, which is very typical in windows, to get my motherboard accept this often note that the latencies direfentes They were exposed very elevated eg 13-13-13-42 / 1.655V.

Hi Sato 

just wanted to jump in here and tell you that I have those exact same sticks from G.Skill   >> F3-14900CL9D-8GBXL  8GB kit 2x4GB  9-10-9-28-CL9 @1.5V installed in a Asus Sabertooth 990 FX mobo with an FX-8150  Working great here &  They would be a very good choice for you too.

new egg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231455

those would be a solid choice for Gigabyte  GA-990FXA-UD5 and look to be the same GSkill ram in the link from Amazon you had above.

**** Good idea to follow @eunoia's advice to update and flash the bios.

rrplay hello.

I Inform You That I have in my hands the memories That You Indicated in your comments before me.

 

-This auction is for a brand new, never opened 8GB DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) G.Skill Ripjaws Gaming Series memory kit F3-14900CL9D-model 8GBXL. It includes two 240-pin DIMMs 4GB.

Some of the features include:

 

Compatible with Intel Z77 Chipset, Intel LGA 1155, and AMD platforms Llano/AM3 +

CAS Latency 9

9-10-9-28 timings

1.5V

Intel XMP Support

unbuffered

Heat Spreader

I did everything you told me update the BIOS of my Gigabyte UD5, so the latest version F10. then install the new memory Mentioned above.

BUT THERE ON MEMORY AGAINST.

WORK THAT NO ONE THAT I WANT TO Frequency 1866MHz. THE SET AND NOW HE ANYWAY only work at 1600MHz. MESSAGE AND SHOWS My BIOS SAYS: overclocking failed.

 

Click here to see the bigger picture: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8045/8094554640_11a368dfdb_k.jpg

And I have not done any overclock my CPU, CHIPSET least. Can anyone tell me what's going on?

Greetings all!

Hi ,

Grab some utilities like CPU-z to verify clock settings and ram timings, GB has some utilities to adjust the settings as well but you may really want to check the bios settings, because it may not be automatically detecting the timings properly. This is not un-common or a compatibility issue, but just a minor quirk ..

See pg 53 [pdf US version] of your GB GA-990FXA-UD5 manual and Load Optimized defaults after system crash like you had and start with a clean slate and reboot.

In the Bios look at the MB Intelligent Tweaker page and verify the memory speed and DRAM voltage match the GSkill sticks that you have. If not Go to DRAM Configuration page in bios and enter them manually there. Memory Clock at 1866 with 9-10-9-28 2T check DRAM V -1.5..Once you have those memory timings and booting cleanly save them in the Bios !

For Overclocking further you will need to disable all C states, Cool & Quiet and power saving states in BIOS in the Advanced Bios features page. You can begin the OC process by making small adjustment to to the multiplier and you will need to increase Vcore. Make small changes as you go save in bios and test for stability and temps .

Some folks use the AMD Over drive Utility too, and it may be a good idea to look at .pdf doc to better underage how the FX-8120 addresses memory. There are many guides and videos online to OC your GA-990FXA-UD5 with a Bulldozer series cpu and (your results may vary).It is also likely that you may have some fun and find the performance tuning experience rewarding especially when seeing some pretty positive results along the way.

Some guys have been using the latest version of OCCT to stress and test a chip like the FX-8120 the included LinPack generates plenty of heat be sure monitor those temps and keep it below 61C for a reasonable OC performance tune for 24/7 use.

Maybe some of this will help you out. :)

Listen to rrplay and download CPU-Z and post a screen capture of the memory tab.

The two RAM modules need to be installed in separate memory channels if you want to run it at 1866MHz, Sato.
