  1. Go to the Corsair web site, and access their ram configurator.
    Enter your motherboard, and you will get a list of supported ram kits.
    If the kit is on the list, you are good.


    I am too lazy to do this for you.
  2. Nope, your mobo only supports clock 1866(O.C.) or less max.

    @ 2 x DIMM, Max. 8GB, DDR3 1866(O.C.)/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066 MHz ECC, Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory

    Actually Nikorr you are incorrect that memory will work in the board it will just be clocked down to a lower speed by the Bios. After a bit of searching the memory they bought is 2133Mhz but thats max speed. Here's the specs on the memory:

    8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
    11-11-11-27 latency
    Dual Channel Kit
    240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM
    Vengeance Blue low profile heat spreader for styling and performance
    Intel XMP (Extreme Memory Profile) Support

    Specifications:

    Warranty: Lifetime
    Size: 8GB Kit (2 x 4GB)
    Performance Profile: XMP
    Fan Included: No
    Heat Spreader: Vengeance
    Memory Configuration: Dual Channel
    Memory Type: DDR3
    Package - Memory Pin: 240
    Package - Memory Format: DIMM
    Tested Voltage: 1.5
    SPD Voltage: 1.5
    Speed Rating: PC3-17000 (2133MHz)
    SPD Speed: 1600Mhz
    Tested Speed: 2133Mhz
    Tested Latency: 11-11-11-27
    SPD Latency: 9-9-9-24
    The speed setting is within the motherboards specs, although the 1600Mhz spec is listed as O.C., but it should work just fine.
  4. All right, I should correct myself here : ))

    Right, it will work, I assume, people know that it will just get down-clocked to the CPU specs speed, just not at the speed of 2133MHz

    Thanx for the correction.
  5. Thank you. So it will automatically downclock my corsair card to default 1600 mhz
