lol i just came on here to ask the exact same thing but reverse, you got to it first!!

I was wondering if: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... motherboard

with this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... would work?

The MOBO says:

Memory standard: DDR3 1866(OC)*/1333/1066 *To reach DDR3 1866MHz or above, you must install two memory modules and install them in the DDR3_3 and DDR3_4 memory sockets.

if th standard is less than what the memory is, is that OK?

thanks! hope you get answered Nuke!!

The product info should give you a no guessing answer.

Edit: it isn't clear to be sure I would go with exactly what is stated.

so that means its not possible to use different speed ram sticks from the motherboard (accepted) speed? Even if the motherboard is higher?

Maybe so. All I said was that it wasn't clear.

For best results use the ram stated however If you already have the ram, try. That's all I can tell you.

Should work without problems since 1600 is the max speed that support without OC.

Those 8GB can works, but u need change the RAM settings in the BIOS to the specific for the RAM if u want the 1600 speed.
