I have the GIGABYTE EX58-UD5 Motherboard (yes its old) and atm I have OCZ Gold 2gb 1333mhz (6) of RAM in. I was looking to buy the Corsair Vengeance Blue 16 gb Pack.


My question is, will my motherboard support this RAM?

It should work, just check the manual for 4 stick ram configuration (it may only post in certain slots). I noticed zero benefit when upgrading to 16 gb from 8. Our resident Intel rep Chris recommends you run the ram at 1333 and 1.5v. Then sell your old ocz gold on craigslist. Newegg has a corsair 3 x 4 gb kit for only $65, plus you get a ten percent discount for corsair with email promo code.

Can you URL me to this corsair RAM? I am in Canada so newegg.ca please and thanks. Well I notice much of a difference with 1333 mhz RAM compared to 1600 mhz?

Your Motherboard is running on Triple channel that 's why you put 6x2GB DDR3 1333.... so you have 12GB now ... if you want to upgade you better order the triple channel kit something like this
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...
and give you 24GB Max..

You can order the 4x4GB Kit but in that case you're not running on Triple channel ... the overall performance may even decrease

if you want safe you can go for DDR3 1333
