Ok, here is the mobo I plan to get http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Now it says the ram types are 1066/1333/1600. However, on newegg there are three diff types for the 1333. The types are pc3 10600, 10660, and 10666. Basicially, how do I tell which type will work with that motherboard?

All of them will work, however go with PC3 10600,it offers the best price/performance ratio between them

Not true.

The speeds supported: 4 x DIMM, Max. 16 GB, DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066 ECC,Non-ECC,Un-buffered Memory

Use either Certified {See Memory Support List/Specifications -tab}- http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=nlWYrI9wlNIYHAaa

Tested {Example} - http://www.ec.kingston.com/ecom/configurator_new/models...

Good Luck!

There are lots of memories that aren't in the QVL list but they'll work fine.

"Solved" = No! While I appreciate the {Moderator} status and the OP notion to choose to believe @Maziar - this is really bad advice. I stated Certified {ASUS calls QVL} & Tested - either if a good choice.

^ Then I "wish" I'd quit seeing all of the Memory that "should've/could've" work with problems being posted here - it's driving me nuts. Even different "lot/bin" don't play together well.

Example {same model #/different bin/scroll to "JEEEZZ!!"} - http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/page-280059_30_50.htm...

I Strongly recommend Certified <or> Tested.
