ASROCK 990FX EXTREME3 AMD SATA DRIVER
So of all of the hundreds of 2x8GB DDR3 memory products available, only 3 of them will work on this board? Do you know if the G. Is there anything else I could do or try? Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do next?
FX Extreme 4 help with AHCI please! Tom's Hardware Forum
This is my first build, and I really would appreciate any suggestions or guidance. Thanks so much for the help! Joe IMO, a first time PC builder should definitely choose memory from the board's compatible memory list. That removes a major unknown for the builder if they have problems starting the PC.
Are you a human?
Unfortunately, we cannot just choose whatever memory we would like to use in a PC, Asrock 990FX Extreme3 AMD SATA are compatibility limitations that cause some models to be unusable. Sorry but the rest of this just helps to explain why memory is incompatible, not what memory to use. To what extent a mother board used with this type of processor still influences the compatibility of various models of DRAM, is a good question. Frankly I don't know. Actually, when the memory controller was a part of the board's "Northbridge" chipset, which is normally made by the same manufacture as the CPU, that again would seem to be at least partially independent of the mother board itself.
Blaming a mother board for memory incompatibility, which we usually do, may be completely wrong. I've seen documentation in older mother board manuals stating that certain kinds of memory chips used in some DIMMs were incompatible which is where we got the idea the board is the culprit. Just how Extreme would that be?

It's the Extreme3 part of the name that causes us confusion, as you have to look very hard at this motherboard to spot anything that looks extreme. In fact the ASRock gives every indication that it has been built down to a price, starting with the size of the board which measures only Asrock 990FX Extreme3 AMD SATA mm.
That is 25mm narrower than a standard ATX motherboard and is a clear indication that the bill Asrock 990FX Extreme3 AMD SATA materials and the cost of components has been kept to a minimum. Most people will find that five internal connectors are perfectly adequate but you might be a tricky customer.
By contrast the Extreme4 has three slots that each supply the full bandwidth that you would expect and as a result these can be used for triples graphics gaming. Our point here is Asrock 990FX Extreme3 AMD SATA the Extreme4 isn't especially extreme but does qualify as a motherboard for the enthusiast. To our way of thinking this means that the Extreme3 would more fairly be called the FX Average.
The natural consequence, unfortunately, is that there are signs of cost cutting such as the way that the chipset and power regulation heatsinks attach to the board with plastic pop pins. AsRock has also gone for the basic approach when it comes to the colour scheme.
The PCB is dark brown which is fine and the expansion slots and memory slots are black. There is no colour coding or labelling for the front panel headers and memory slots, all of which makes the PC build more tricky than it needs to be.
In fairness the five SATA ports are labelled, which is handy as ports one and two are positioned towards the foot of the board which is counter-intuitive. The lack of colour coding is annoying as the manual refers to memory channels A black and B blackwhich really doesn't help.
