I was doing more research today and it appears that G.SKILL designed this memory especially for i5 and i7 customers and there has been message board talk about how it will work with AMD but no one has really tried it.
To be honest, I bought it because it looked best for the price.
Have I made a mistake?

Not really, the specificationes says that works with I5, I7 and AM3 platform. IMO is a great election for the price and the volts.
My mobo only supports DDR3 1666(O.C.)/1333/1066 so will this memory at 1600 just underclock itself to 1333? I would have to bump it to 1666 to get the most out of it correct?
