So how do I go about finding a site that will show RAM that is compatible for my setup?

Edit1: Also the RAM was baught off of EBAY. Not sure if I could return it or not

EBAY isn't the most reliable source for computer components.

That being said, there are a couple ways to find RAM for your setup.
  1. The AMD site, listed earlier, AMD Memory for Systems
  2. Asus M4A89GTD PRO Memory Upgrades - Guaranteed Compatible Memory for your Asus M4A89GTD PRO from Corsair

Ive got to choose between

http://www.amazon.co.uk/AMD-DDR3-133...6326199&sr=8-1

or

Corsair CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 SDRAM Memory: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

What would you say would be the best option. the AMD Doesnt say if its dual Channel or not.

I hope AMD will solve this soon.

Computer has been running for 48 hours non-stop no errors. I have been gaming on it for at least 16 our of that 48 as well.

Will keep you updated

Edit 1: Ive noticed something. whenever I play games my CPU temp is at 60-61, which I assum is ok, but my CORE temps are at or above 76, highest I have seen is 79. Is that normal?
