Introduction

 

Introduction


You may have noticed a common theme amongst our latest reviews within the last 6 weeks. We have assessed three Socket AM3 motherboards as well as the new Phenom II X6 1075T. Indeed, AMD seems to be the flavour of the month here at Overclock3D and whether you like it or not we have yet another AMD orientated product in store for you; the G.Skill FLARE PC3-16000 DDR3 set.

So lets just say that you're in the market for a performance machine that revolves around AMD's Phenom II series of processors and 870/890GX/FX motherboards. It stands to reason that you would probably want a quality set of RAM as well right? To start off with, we'll quickly walk you through today's memory kit.

The problem with the RAM not going to up to 2000Mhz might be that your motherboard is not specified as being compatible with the RAM. Only selected boards have been comfirmed of being able to run these fellas at 'full':

ASUS M4A89TD PRO

ASUS M4A89GTD PRO

ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3

*The Asus Crosshair Formula is also compatible, though it does not say so on the compatible motherboards list.

Sorry btw if im just stating the obvious to you though matey. I'm probably just being a dick.
