Hello, I'm about to buy a asus P7p55d-e Pro and a GSKILL 6GB (3x2GB) TT DDR3-1600Mhz CL6 1,6V Low Voltage TRIPPLE (6-8-6-20) Ram. I was wondering if they would work together without causing a problem?

The P7P55D-E Pro uses dual channel memory and that G.Skill Ripjaws kit is triple. For a dual channel kit you'll need a 2x2 GB or 2x4 GB kit for optimal performance.

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

Yeah the 6GB kit can run in the mobo but not as tri-channle kit since that feature only is supported by i7-9xx series and X58 chipset. Un ur case u will have a dual channel 2x2GB plus a single channel 1x2GB.

IMO is better if u RMA the RAM and get a 2x2GB kit dual channel for the mobo.
