First time posting so not too sure if its the right thread but here we go.
I am currently building a new gaming PC (AMD). I'm an MMORPG and FPS player - anything really.
I have a few questions before continuing with the buy.
CPU: AMD FX 9590
GPU: Gainword Geforce GTX 770 Phantom
Mobo: ASUS Crosshair V Formula (NOT Z)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-15000C9 1866MHz Dual Channel Kit (CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9)
PSU: RaidMax 1000W
CPU Cooler: (ALSO Unsure of this)
Now my question is will the RAM work correctly with the CPU and MOBO? All the forum posts I've read say the RAM seems to be problematic where it does not run at intended speeds or crashes the computer. I already have the Cooler, MOBO and SU so no changing that. Any suggestions for the RAM? I wouldnt mind switching down to a slower speed if necessary. The mobo instruction manual has a VERY specific set of compatible RAM so please only advise if you know whats going on
P.S I Know AMD is not everyones first choice for gaming since they rarely use more than 2 cores but i like to Stream and multitask while waiting.
