Damn I just bought this for 56 quid over the weekend. Looks like memory has come down a bit.
#2
Was wondering if this memory would be suitable for a X48 chipset, socket 775, DDR3 motherboard?

It would more than likely work but ur better of buying a triple channel kit. this is two stick dual channel for amd.

Should have had a good goggle before asking question.It is suitable.

Thanks for the reply.I should have said the motherboard is dual channel.So i think from what i have found out that it will work if i change the voltages in bios

Ah right should work then most intel boards are triple channel which is why i said that.

Great price for DDR3

Very cheap, was looking at buying some of these just a couple of hours ago, great price!

I bought 2000MHz ram for £120 for 6GB. This is a good price though.

Only a very small number of Intel boards are triple channel; x58 chipset.

If anything, these sticks are for Intel, not AMD, given that they have XMP timings.

having recently wasted weeks trying so solve intermittent stability problems on a new rig, only to find it was due to the memory not being 100% compatible with my motherboard, I'd suggest anyone interested in this memory check with the Corsair configurator to see if it's recommended for your motherboard first...

Only socket 1366 motherboards are triple channel.

Socket 1366 = x58 chipset.

Just too confusing. I was going to get the asus M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 socket AM3 socket and looked on the qualified memory list for this. The XMP caught my eye having read your post earlier.

I searched Scan for this one CMX8GX3M4A1600C9(XMP) and found it here http://www.scan.co.uk/products/8gb-(4x2gb)-corsair-xms3-classic-ddr3-pc3-12800-(1600)-non-ecc-unbuffered-cas-9-9-9-24-xmp-165v

Problem is the description just goes on about how this is intended for Intel i3/4/5 and nothing at all about AMD????? And theres loads of XMP designated memories on the M4A89GTD PRO Series Motherboard Qualified Vendors Lists (QVL) DDR3-1600 MHz capability oO

Whats going on?

Watch the voltage 1.65 is high and some boards especially the newer H57 will not work well with that voltage (had issued with my Asus H57 with 1.65v). I opted for OCZ REAPER series Low Voltage. Works very well and prefer it to Corsair. Also the RAM its latency is quite high which isn't the best.

The memory controller is now on the CPU so it's not a chipset issue. Current Intel CPUs are rated for RAM up to 1.65V so if you had problems it was just an incompatibility issue I suggest.

XMP is just a memory profile that some Intel motherboards use. It is meant to aid overclocking by having slightly different timings (or something along those lines), and give performance boosts, but that's mainly marketing gimmick as the differences aren't meant to be all that much (RAM is not usually an issue for bottlenecks).

XMP compatible memory will work fine on AMD motherboards, you just use the default memory profile that the RAM also support. In fact, many people who have XMP supporting motherboards and XMP RAM will use the default memory profiles anyway (i.e. the non-XMP one), as some people find that using the XMP profile lowers the 1600hz RAM to 1333 for whatever strange reason.

I've tried the default memory profile and the XMP one on my i5 system, didn't notice a difference in any speed tests, but then I've not overclocked my RAM (and wont ever) so maybe it's not for me.
