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
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)
