I am looking at buying a ASUS P7P55 WS Supercomputer for a new build and when I went to their website to look at QVL memory it showed a 6GB Gskill Tripple Channel kit on the list?

G.SKILL F3-10666CL9T-6GBNQ DDR3 1333 6144MB(Kit of 3) DS N/A Heat-Sink Package 9-9-9-24(1333-9-9-9-24) 1.5

Is this right? I was actually wanting to install 8GB of 1333 CAS 7 but there is ZERO 8GB kits listed on the QVL. I would go for the 6GB above but will that tripple channel kit work?

Trying to get the best 6GB or 8GB of ram for gaming for $100 or less that will fit this board

Confused..... :pt1cable:

That board supports dual channel, up to 4gb per slot. Any dual channel, 2x4gb. 1333, cas7 DDR3 kit will work for you. Don't know why they have a triple channel kit for that in the support list, those boards have 3 or 6 dimm slots.

Thank you for the informative reply. I thought so, but their QVL threw me for a loop and being a rookie builder I started to doubt what I had learned LOL

Your welcome. Glad to be able to help.
Must be an error on the QVL. Get yourself a good name brand set of ram. DDR3's have been dropping in price lately. As a note, manufacturers generally test memory that is given to them. QVL's never include all compatible modules. Also, cas7 modules may need to have the timings and voltage set manually in the bios, depending on the mobo.
