No, you can run up to 16 gigs onto that board...there are 4 slots that you can put memory into, so you can run two sets of the memory you posted and have 8 gigs, with absolutely no problems.

just look at the "customers also bought" section, they also bought 1600 DDR3 Ram...you won't have a problem, your board will support it, it just won't support an overclock past 1666


Personally i like this board better if you havn't bought that yet :http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

For any ram you are considering, do your own homework.
Go to the ram vendor's web site, and access their configurator.
Corsair, Kingston, Patriot, OCZ and others have them.
Their compatibility list is more current than the motherboard vendor's QVL lists which rarely get updated.
Enter your mobo or PC, and get a list of compatible ram sticks.

Cpu's are not very sensitive to ram speeds.
If you look at real application and game benchmarks(vs. synthetic tests),
you will see negligible difference in performance between the slowest and fastest ram.
Perhaps 1-2%. Not worth it to me.
Don't pay extra for faster ram or better timings unless you are a maximum overclocker.

Well the ram is just on a combo with the pii 955 right now so thats why i might get it.
