    Yeah i checked the instruction manuel and it said it only supported up to 4 gb ram sticks and i have 2 8 gb. it says it can hold up to 32 but thats bs it can only hold 16. False advertising

    I dont really have a problem with MSI, I was just mad that when they called me they said it would work for Windows 7 just fine and it never did and countless people had the same problem with the board. To be fair the board I bought from MSI wasn’t that great so I decided to go this time for a better quality board in general. Their customer service lying to me is what the real problem was.

    Yeah, I have 2GB sticks in it and a friend of mine who also has it has 4GB sticks in his so you will be fine as long as it matches one of those specs that I mentioned in my previous comment!

    AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor and I love it!

    what i mean to ask is can you put a 8 gb stick in a 16 gb ram slot

  6. Drahcar 2:20 am 25/12 of 2012

    As long as they are the same stick and have are any of these specs DDR3 2133(O.C.)/1866/1600/1333/1066 you should be perfectly fine, I have 4 2GB sticks, you can have up to 32GB of RAM on this series if I remember right.

  11. Drahcar 4:54 am 25/12 of 2012

    I havent had any problems with it so far at all, I havent even really done much tuning to it due to it working so well out of the box.

  12. Drahcar 5:09 am 25/12 of 2012

    Yeah, but at least it is an option, better to have it then to not have it right? haha
