Hey
Will this ram, (even though it says it's quad channel, there are only 4 DIMMS) work?

With this mobo?

Also do I need Win 7 Pro or can I use home premium?

Thanks,

In theory, sure it'll work, but it's cas10, that's pretty slow, I'd get at least cas9.

I'd check your mobo's QVL memory support list and choose something from there though.

Unfortunately, the memory support list for that mobo is blank.......Asus has really taken a nose dive lately with QC.

You can use any 64bit os you want.

You will definitely need Pro or Ultimate to use more than 16GB of RAM. Obviously the 64bit iteration of those.
Home Premium is limited to 16GB

As for compatibility, I don't see a QVL from ASUS or Corsair on this motherboard, so no guarantees. But it should work.

However, I have to ask, do you really need 32GB of RAM? Most games are fine at 4GB, maybe sometimes 8GB... but anything more than that is overkill unless you're a DBA, using loads of virtual machines or heavy video editing...

Oh, don't worry about the quad channel thing. Just means that you will have 4 identical RAM modules. You could safely buy dual or quad channel RAM parts for this mobo

I wasn't aware home premium had a 16GB limitation.

What happened to the 16GB ripjaws you had? That was already major overkill, what could you possibly need 32GB for?

according to the latest it takes Corsair 1866 DDR3 CMT3GX3M4X1866C9(XMP) 32gig set of 4 timing is 9-10-9-27 and 1.5 voltage and yes use win pro as it handles ram better. this is considered 9 timing folks these huge sticks are not really slower even at 10 due to how fast the memory goes through the lanes and is handled by the CPU if your using a i7 2600 the lanes can get congested as compared to the newer i7 3770k good luck. Truth be told average person can't tell
