Ok. I placed order for this RAM chip last night.

Later found out in my motherboard's manual that it might not be supported at all.

For some weird reason the manual states that it would take only 4GB chips max per slot.

I would still try out. If it does not work for me, anyone here interested?

Would be great if I can get it for as close to the price I paid for it. Though I understand that a discount would be reasonable. :)

ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Motherboards- ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO

i am already on the latest bios firmware that they have on their website.

googling around confuses me more. it seems to work with 8GB RAM but might not work at the peak speed 1600.

and i thought i was getting a future proof motherboard when i picked it for around 7K when cheaper ones were available for 3-4K :D

The motherboard supports DDR3 memory that features data transfer rates of 1800 (O.C.)/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066 MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest operation system, 3D graphics, multimedia, and Internet applications.

tells me that i would have to overclock the ram. :confused:

i have no idea how to do that and how safe it would be.

It's interesting to note that in order for the board to reach as-advertised 1,800 MHz memory speeds, it has to rely on an overclocked reference clock, as the highest selectable memory speed in the BIOS is 800 MHz (1,600 MT/s). We didn't have 1,800 MHz DDR3 available for testing, but we can say that the board handled our Mushkin XP3-12800 at 1,600 MHz with its advertised 7-8-7-20 timings and encountered no stability issues whatsoever. The M4A785TD-V EVO was only one of the two boards in our 785G roundup that could accomplish this feat.

You dont have to overclock , it will automatically run at 1333 and maybe even 1600 without overclock

nope. asus website requires me to use bios to overclock the RAM :D i hope that it does not cause stability problems. though i do not think it would hate it if it does work at 1333 without overclocking. i am running out of RAM at daily tasks. i am not much concerned with speed.
