I had good luck with the G.SKILL ECO DDR3-1333 on my 890GPA-UD3H (890GX).

Thanks for the suggestion guys. I will definitely keep these memory models in mind!
So no issues with these memory at all.
Not Even when overclocking ?

cheers!!

Well DDR3-1333 will hold you back, definitely look into DDR3-1600 IMO.

Whatever ram you get, make sure once installed you check the voltage for the ram. I've got the 790FX version of this board (790FX-UD5P) and it under-volted my ram by 0.1volts at default settings. I was getting random crashes every few days, but once I manually bumped up the voltage, the system has been rock solid.

Anything in G.skill, Mushkin, Kingston, Corsair, Patriot will work jsut fine on this board:) You don't need over 1600 but 1333 would be uselesssince it's almost the same price!
