Hi, I'm trying to upgrade my hardware and get these parts: SAM3+ AMD FX-4300, Crucial 4GB DDR3 1600MHz (CPU will work with motherboard, BIOS upgraded to 1.30). So i looked up CPU support list to find most fitting CPU for me, then I checked that CPU is AM3+ socket and it supports only "DDR3 1600/1333/1066/800 non-ECC, Max. capacity of system memory: 8GB", so I chose to get 2x4GB DDR3 1600MHz. Problem is when i checked Memory QVL, I found out that DDR3 in 1600mhz list max memory size is 2gb. 4gb is in 1066mhz list (and some were below 1066). I know there is a bit performance difference, but I would really like to have that "bit". Is there any way to have AM3+ working with DDR3 2x4gb 1600mhz?? Or my best option is DDR3 2x4gb 1066mhz?? Thank You. :)

But why in Memory QVL DDR3-1600 list there is no 4gb? Or the list is just not updated?
