Hi there. I have the Sabertooth 990fx mobo with the AMD Phenom II Black Edition processor with a total of 16gb ram.(Kingston) I have 4 extra Corsair Dominator-GT ram, 12gb 1866mhz DDR3. Is it worth putting in the Corsair ram or will it not make a difference? Thank you for your time. :)

The Dominator modules are 3GB.
Don't know if that electrical module geometry will work on your machine.

Here's an old long Review.

The Bios will have to be set up differently but you can give the Dominator's a try.

Just don't mix the Kngston and Corsair together.

You didn't say what the Kingston Module Specs are so is hard to tell if you will see a difference if you can get the Dominators to run.

Thanks, that was a good read. I chatted with one of the reps at Tigerdirect earlier and they said they would work on my mobo but couldn't comment on whether it would make a difference or not. I will have to remove the massive heat sink I have to get to the Kingston ram sticks as I forgot exactly what they were. I ordered the bare minimum just to get the computer up and running quickly. The set up works well as is, just need to speed things up a bit since I use a lot of different software at the same time. Thanks for the info. :)
