Intel Core i7 4770K Unlocked Quad Core 3.5GHZ Processor LGA1150 Haswell 8MB Cache Retail

ASUS Maximus VI Hero ATX LGA1150 Z87 3PCI-E16 3PCI DDR3 SATA3 USB3.0 CrossFireX/SLI HDMI Motherboard

ADATA SX900 2.5" 128GB SSD SATA 3 SandForce 2281 550MB/SEC Write and 530MB/SEC Read

Your link to NCIX didn't work for me.

From the info culled from the URL, you're considering a G.SKILL F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL Ripjaws X 16GB 2X8GB Kit. This will work fine for your motherboard according to G.SKILL's website -> http://www.gskill.com/en/configurator?manu=29&chip=1307...

As always, ensure the DIMMs profile works with your cooling solution.

Look for a 1600/9 set, if sticking at 1600, I'd suggest 1866 or 2133 at a minimum, 1600 is entry level and 1600/10 is below entry level, equates to 1333/9

Take a look at the GSkill 1866/9 Snipers or if in the budget (cost a little more) the Tridents 1866/8, they are (IMO) about the best line of sticks available
