*** The CPU you selected is supported (Core i7 960(3.2G,L2:4x256KB,L3:8M, rev.D0,130W)): http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1366/Ramp...

Ram

*** The memory, based on the qualified vendor list, is not certified but the 6GB kit "F3-12800CL9T-6GBNQ" is on the list. I'd suggest asking G.Skill if the 12GB and 6GB kit are roughly the same and if the 12GB kit is known to work on the motherboard. I think, basing off the motherboard specs, it'll work fine. Link to the supported memory list: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1366/Ramp...
The motherboard supports 6 rows of memory for a total of 24GB on board. 24/6=4GB per row. It should be fine but please check with G.Skill.

I've stripped the quotes. On my first reply, everything should work except for the memory which you will need to verify with G.Skill to see if it's fully compatible. My guess is, the memory should work but you should still ask G.Skill for verification.
