    From corsair I would get a single quad channel Platinum kit.

    Choosing a frequency is sometimes also complicated a bit by the timings of the RAM. There is a formula that can help you in deciding if one kit is faster than the other when the timings are taken into account.

    (CAS/frequency) x 2000 gives you a number in nanoseconds for comparing speeds.

    Say you see a 1600 kit at 7-8-7-20 and a 1866 kit at 9-10-9-28 which is faster?

    Well 7/1600 x 2000 = 8.75 nanoseconds; 9/1866 x 2000 = 9.646 so the 1600 kit actually looks quicker.

    1st question should be, what are you going to use this system for? gaming mostly? editing a lot? a mix of the two?

    I'm not sure if it works with the board but I would try Corsair Dominator GT.
