^ Dont go with 8GB memory...if you populate 1/2/4/5 slots, you will loose Tri-Channel config...
So go with 6GB(3x 2GB/ 12GB kits(3x4GB/ 6x 2GB) or maybe even 9GB(3x 2GB + 3x 1GB) but not preferred though...
And why do you want 8GB of memory ?
You would need more than 6GB of RAM only when you do pro photo/ video editing, rendering and such tasks...
For gaming and general usage, you wont notice much difference using more than 6GB of RAM...

If you will be using an aftermarket CPU cooler, just take card when you choose RAM with tall heatsinks as they might block the CPU cooler...
