Wondering if this memory will work with this motherboard?

ASUS M4A89GTD PRO

&

OCZ3G1600LV6GK 6 gigs 1600 OCZ

Links for both :

1) Mobo - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

2) Memory - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Got an amazing deal from a guy on craigslist the ram for $60 with a slew of other things. Planning on building using the asus mobo and possibly the x4 965 BE or x4 635 ( Can't figure out which one? )

Also wondering if this mobo is one of the best for $150 or less?


Just found this forum a day or so ago and like it :D

1) The motherboard is a nice one!!

2) The RAM will work but not designed for your motherboard (triple-channel). At $60, it is hard to pass up and I would only run two stickies for dual-channel memory. Most applications don't need more than 4GB, so you are still good to go if need be at 6GB.

damm! I knew I was missing something.

Can I still pop in all 3 stickies and run at 1600 tho? even if just dual

or dual meaning I can literally only do 2 stickies.

if so then I guess I can make a Popsicle with the 3rd.

You can run with all three. It is just a slight decrease in performance, if any. I would just run with three and call it a day :)
