Will this G.Skill memory fit in my workstation?

I have all the components picked out for my new workstation build... except for the memory.

I've zeroed in on putting 12GB of the G.Skill F3-12800CL8T-6GBPI in my machine:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

But before I can pull the trigger though I need to figure out if these tall sticks are going to fit in on my ASUS P6X58D motherboard with a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus attached to my processor.

Is there anyone out there that can verify whether or not this RAM will be able to fit in such a setup?

Thanks!

In a Workstation use only certified DDR; look under the "Memory Support List"

P6X58D Premium - http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=wurRaDZ8lo4Ckukj
P6X58D-E - http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=gFBKfNyhppW9tDbB

BTW -Yes, the DDR will fit easily under your Cooler Master Hyper 212.


Oh... crap. I guess this RAM technically isn't listed in the QVL for the P6X58D Premium.

The QVL lists the F3-12800CL8T-6GBPI by G.Skill. I copied and pasted that into Newegg which took me to the link I originally posted, but that RAM is actually F3-12800CL8TU-6GBPI.

Round and round I go... well, does anyone have a triple channel RAM recommendation that's certified for use in a P6X58D Premium up to six modules? (For a CS5 Master Collection and 3ds Max workstation.)

Thanks for your reply Jaquith. Good catch.
