The X90 series doesn't seem fussy about memory. I installed a matched pair of G.SKILL Ripjaws DDR3 1333 in the family 390, with excellent results.

RE: Dell 990 - Memory Compatibility ?

I recently upgraded my 990 MT i7-2600 with 16 GB (4GB x 4) Samsung modules:

PC3-10600 (DDR3-1333)      M378B5273DH0-CH9

They work great.

Stay away from generic memory modules. They don't report meta-data correctly or none at all. CPU-Z Memory and SPD tabs will have mostly blank (ie grayed out) boxes. Kingston is a well-known brand and should be fine.
