Shopping for DDR3 for an AM3 system is a little different that for a Core i7 system, as AMD has opted to go with dual channel as opposed to triple channel.  Arguments about the exact cause of that decision still goes on; that is not the purpose of iXBT Labs review however.  They are looking at a mix of 1600MHz and 1800MHz dual channel kits paired with Phenom II X4 955BE

Corsair Labs achieved an astounding speed of DDR3-2533MHz with the aggressive memory timings of 7-8-7-20 using a triple-channel 6GB memory kit.
