No one can say 100% that your "CMP8GX3M2A1600C9" won't have any problems. However, if Corsair doesn't list the modules I wouldn't purchase them!

Verified Corsairs:
Complete List Corsair - http://www.corsair.com/configurator/product_results.asp...
{4x2GB/8GB/1600MHz} CMX8GX3M4A1600C9 is verified from Corsair to work - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

{x2 Modules/4GB/1333MHz} CMV4GX3M1A1333C9 is verified from Corsair to work - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Here's the Certified list from MSI - http://www.msi.com/uploads/test_report/TR10_1977.pdf

note: Due to the chipset resource deployment, the system density will only be detected up
to 15+GB (not full 16GB) when each DIMM is installed with a 4GB memory module.


Good Luck & Hope this Answers your questions!

Hi Smart, another option of branded memory would be Kingston, i guess it is a prefrence but it is designed to be multi compatible, and i have always found it to be very reliable.

I prefer Corsair, Mushkin & G.SKILL - also Kingston HyperX H20 new line is pretty interesting. However, without being as certain as possible don't buy memory unless the MOBO and/or RAM manufactures state indeed it will work.
