ASUS P6X58D Premium

building my first computer and i'll be getting the ASUS P6X58D Premium and the only thing that i'am stuck on is the memory i dont know if i should get

kingston http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104116

Kingston HyperX 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C8D3K3/6GX


or corsair http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145224

CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1600C8D


the problem is the kingston is the one i had originally picked just then i found out about the motherboard and the P6X58D PREMIUM Memory Qualified Vendors List (QVL)
and the kingston one i want with the cas latency of 8 is not on there but the exact same one but with cas latency 9 is on there
the corsair that i looked up as a back up is on there

so if i get the kingston will it not work with my motherboard?

    iam looking at that dominator ram the one thats more expensive on the link that you gave me and iam checking the P6X58D PREMIUM DDR3 1600 Qualified Vendors List (QVL) and its not on there ... so does that mean the ram wont work? iam new and i dont want to fail at my first computer build

    iam also worried about the ram being to tall and hitting the coolermaster v8 that i plan on getting

    That the RAM doesn't list in the QVL of the mobo doesn't mean that the RAM don't work.

    The RAM work fine, just was not used to test the mobo. Now, the problem could be the V8, but I think that the only RAM that have problems with the V8 are the Kingston Hyper X

    I have that Ram (TR3X6G1600C8D) I got all my stuff from newegg. That ram was suggested for the P6X58D figured I couldn't go wrong, right?

    The memory is listed in the P6X58D's User Guide as DS A,B,C

    The TR3X6G1600C8D is listed http://www.intel.com/consumer/game/extreme-memory.htm for the extreme i7 chips as having two X.M.P. profiles.

    With my i7-930 I only have one X.M.P. proflie, if you read the reviews:

    " They are not DDR3 1066 MHz stock. The only reason hey run at 1066 is because the Core i7's memory controller is rated at 1066 MHz; anything above that overclocks the CPU's memory controller. These are actually DDR3 1333 sticks with huge overclocking potential. They have SPD settings for 1333MHz @ 9-10-10-25 and 1.5V (standard for DDR3). There's also an XMP Profile set for 1600 @ 8-8-8-24 and 1.65V; here's where the overclocking is, but they're guaranteed to work at these settings."
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145224&Tpk=TR3X6G1600C8D

    This seems to hold true to all DDR3 memory, so according to the User Manual only one channel can be used as X.M.P..
    So only one 1600Mhz stick in a three channel path.

    I came across this article, as my #3 chip slot went south. I noticed it last night, (showing 4088 gigs) not sure when I lost it, but it's been two months since I put my system together - so we shall see.
