I will be using the Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD7 (Rev 1.0) P55 motherbard and an i7 860 processor. Although this is an "over clockers" mobo, I do NOT intend to over clock. I am trying to build a rock solid machine that will be running 24/7/365. As such I could use some guidance choosing the memory to provide the fastest operation while maintaining maximum stability. Is there a chart somewhere that shows ddr3 memory types and the interactions with the P55 chipset and i7 860's internal timing?
We do have tested memory lists for our desktop boards; see the following URL:
I do not know if Gigabyte has something similar, but you could check with them.
As for the Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-860 Processor and what memory types it supports, and the general specifications of it, please, refer to the following URL:
