Here is my list.

I am building it for gaming. I'm impressed with this motherboard but not sure 100% if the memory is compatible. There will be no overclocking at the moment.

if gaming is the main thing its for, i dont believe you need an i7 or 16 gb of ram

while i dont necessarily know ram so well, is there a particular reason why you want that type? if not you could always just get some that you know will be compatible

unless you want 2 tb, why not get a 1 tb wd black 7200 rpm for less money? its faster i think

i didnt really have time to take a look at the motherboard, but do you need a $340 mobo for anything particular? especially since you wont overclock right now? could probably get something else great for cheaper

and, did you mention if you need peripherals?

No I don't any peripherals right now. I chose that memory because I figured it would be faster and it runs at 1.5 volts. I also chose a 2 tb hard drive because of more storage space. The motherboard I chose is because it has great features along with a faster CPU core i7 haswell. This computer will also be used for other tasks other than gaming such as workstation use. Thank you

I will go with a 7200 rpm hd. The motherboard says if I want to run the 2133 ram then I have to overclock or would 1600 ram be okay with gaming and also will that work with the video card I'm choosing?. I'm guess I have to set the clock speed for the ram in the bios I don't have the money for water cooling right now so will that produce extra heat? Does that mean that the CPU needs over clocked because of the ram?
