Hi,

I'm planning to get the P8Z77-V LX motherboard.

I'm just picking out the ram for it but this is my first build so go easy haha. I need some dual channel ram and I want it to be 1600mhz and just for now 2 x 8 (I plan to get another within the next 2 weeks, I just want to get the basic build done)

Would this Ram be compatible?

If not, can someone show me some ram? Looking forward to my first build!

Thanks to anyone who takes the time to answer.

That ran will work, but it's not really the best choice because
-It has tall heat spreaders which can cause compatibility problems with cpu coolers


I suggest this:

Thanks for the reply!

I plan to use the stock cooler for a week while I wait for the H100 from corsair, do you think it will fit in both of them?

I think the H100 is compatible with tall ram. You should be OK
