With the R3X and 980x, u have current intel's highest tech. It can't be only DDR3 1066. You can get triple-channel DDR3 1600 for standard using and even DDR3 2200(oc) can run on this board by OC. Check this out

For make sure you get the right RAM, u can check the QVL..
Good Luck..

RAM timings/frequencies are more dependent on what your motherboard supports and not the CPU. For the CPU its just DDR, DDR2, DDR3 support. Rest all are dependent on the mobo. So check your motherboard's QVL for RAM's before buying, for that you need to check the manufacturers website and look up the motherboard model.
