1156 specific ram on AM3?

This is probably a dumb question, but this ram im looking at (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231419) 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?

  3. But why get expensive ram when this is $20 less http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231277
  4. i was looking at that originally, but I'm planning on putting a pretty hefty overclock on this system, and from what i understand the overclock wont be stable with the multiplier over 19.5, and id like to run it at at least 4GHz
  5. Makes sense then! Hope you got good cooling.
  6. Yeah.. im looking at getting a thermaltake frio, and if that cant handle it ill go liquid
  7. Frio should do it!
