Hey everyone. Just got my parts in for my first build but I noticed something that I'm not quite sure about. I bought an X58 Motherboard and the G-Skill Ram I bought which I only read "For I5/I7 processors" is apparently meant for P55 motherboards or 1166 boards. Will there be any issue if I use this RAM with my Motherboard? I have links posted to both items below. Any help is greatly appreciated. I wasn't sure if this was the right place to post this but hopefully I can get some answers.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM

Basically I just need to know if this RAM will be compatible with this Motherboard and will it work? Thanks!

How does an x58 chipset work with dual channel ram? x58 takes triple channel ram. No it will not work unless i missed something here.

Motherboard manufacturers typically publish a
QVL = Qualified Vendor List for all RAM that is
tested to run AOK with that motherboard e.g.:

It's wise to choose RAM that's already listed in the QVL.


And, yes, the X58 is a triple-channel chipset e.g.
here's the triple-channel version of the RAM above:

Here's a slightly faster set of 3 x DDR3 DIMMs:

This item at Newegg is listed above, but is out of stock at Newegg:

The specs for the 3-channel set should be very close
for that same speed.

I do note a different default voltage setting, however: 1.9V versus 1.65V.

You can always give G.Skill a call, to request confirmation.

Triple channel is the way the motherboard address the ram chips. The motherboard and or processor sends a simultaneous request to all three channels on the motherboard.
ddr3 and ddr2 chips (internally) are structured as double clocked, this happens before the motherboard or processor addresses the chips.
This is a simplified non technical description (don't bash unneccessarily)
