The TridentX. Hands down. Same if not better performance at a lower price. They are the perfect match for your Maximus VI Formula. 😉

Thank you for your advice i choose the G.Skill TridentX Series 2 x 8 GB

Boot straight into bios then i enabled IDE instead of ACHI and set ram to XMP (restart)

Press any key to boot from CD/DVD

First build is up and running now 🙂

I had to make this changes in BIOS to get my system ready for OS.

I dont know why i had to change the AHCI to IDE before i could install Windows from CD ?

You shouldn't need to change it to IDE to install Windows. What version of Windows are you trying to install?

All good, mate. You've successfully configured your RAM to run at 2400MHz. 😉

Not sure why you needed to set to IDE I would strongly suggest that AHCI is the SATA mode you should use.

I just changed BIOS settings back to AHCI from IDE > AHCI (no problem). That time bug looks complicated.
