Question about MSI Z68a-g43 and memory

I just purchased an MSI Z68A-G43 mobo because I needed a cheap loaner while my other board (MSI P67a-GD65) is away for RMA. I didn't check before I ordered to see if my memory would be compatible *facepalm*. My memory is this kit here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231610&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&AID=10440897&PID=3891137&SID=rewrite

The mobo I purchased is here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130621&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&AID=10440897&PID=3891137&SID=rewrite

When I checked the the qualified motherboard list here: http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=545 I did not see my mobo listed.

I'm hoping that the 1600 speed RAM will simply just run at 1333 but will still work. Does anyone know if this is the case? Is there anything I'll need to do to make it work?

Thanks in advance.

  1. Install your ram in pairs in the color coded slots and it should run fine. Msi isn't too picky about what brand of ram you use.
