Windows 7: What mobo goes well with this ram?

What mobo goes well with this ram?

I kinda painted myself into a corner again I picked up a ASUS crosshair IV in hopes of a general speed boost but I'm having odd random lag, its been about the same through 3 reinstalls. I was BSODing before I change my ramm and mobo(mostly due to the ram not liking the mobo)


Anyway long story short whats my best option getting a new AM3/DDr 3 2000(PC16000) mobo that is best for the ramm or trying to go to an 8 core AM3 ?

Sorry if this is off topic ><

Specific make and model numbers will help us a lot.
To better help us to help you would you please add your systems specs? Here's how:SystemInfo See Your System Specs Under System Manufacturer/Model Number add whether it is a desktop or laptop and whether self built. Very important

Log in to Seven Forums and you will be able to transfer the info directly to the specs page in your profile from within the System Info app.
After doing this your specs will be available in each of your posts. Click on My system Specs in the lower left of this post to see how it should look.
Full instructions are in the tutorial.

If using

Crossfire formula 4 and Phenom 2 X4 black AM3. I'll need fast but solid ramm for it.

If using

Crossfire formula 4 and 8GB(4X2) of Patriot Viper extreme 16000 I will need to up the CPU, but I do not think it will fix my random but very short bottleneck lag/lock up.

If using

8GB(4X2) of Patriot Viper extreme 16000 and Phenom 2 X4 black AM3 I will need a PC 1600 mobo for them.

I dunno whats cheap anymore >< whats left of my brains are fried.

I want to either keep the CF4 mobo and get new ram or get a mobo that can run the Phenom X4 and my 16000 ramm without overclocking the ramm.

Zippy, are you aware that RAM is not generally interchangeable across system platforms?

A motherboard is made to use only certain processors. That MB - CPU combination will only be able to use RAM that falls into a specific range of specifications.
A different MB-CPU combination may use an entirely different RAM spec.
You can't assume you can mix-and-match.

So what these gentlemen are looking for from you is the exact model numbers of the components of one setup or the other so they can check and see if you have a compatibility problem.

As far as I know Ramm is built with a few things in mind.

Spec range or format (SDRAM,DDR,DDR2,DDR3,RDRAM ,Rambus*dies laughing*) Which account for things like pin count and spec,voltage variations.

Density[spoiler] if you want to go back to to the 486 and 586 days, did the 686 bring in DDR? I forget...to much dust and junk piles in my damn head LOL[/spoiler]. Awww no spoiler tags?

Specific motherboard and or CPU architecture(Intel and AMD and certain chip set tuned SUKs).(Seems my ramm likes intel......surprise mofoer ><....uhg rushing on cheap deals is never a good thing >>)

Speed(DDr2 200Mhz means 400Mhz in throughput which oddly tells you its class type IE PC 400,PC 800,PC 1066,ect,ect ) , which can be backwards compatible as long as pin and voltage are the same.

Did I miss anything??
---------------------------

Seems I did a booboo on zeee ramm.... I would like to get the fastest ramm for my mobo but ASUS did not have a great list when I checked it.

Checking it again now.........
