Closed 1156 specific ram on AM3? Tags: Memory RAM Motherboards Last response: January 13, 2011 5:31 AM in Memory Share Hobybobag January 12, 2011 11:15:07 PM This is probably a dumb question, but this ram im looking at (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) looks like its supposed to be specific to 1156.. even on the gskill website the only motherboards listed with it are intel (http://gskill.com/products.php?index=336) so my question is, is there any reason this wouldn't work with my MSI 790FX-GD70 motherboard and Phenom 2 x4 965?
