More about what
  1. Check the memory that has been tested for your motherboard from the manufactures website, that is a good starting point.
  2. Mobo information please.
    My recamend is fill all slots dont see capacity. see mhz in board and ram.Reason mhz is the key to achive speed. if board support 1600mhz u insert 1333mhz its waste because not get full speed of ram slot. if board support 1333mhz u insert 1600mhz its also waste of money (1333mhz ram is cheaper than 1600mhz)also u not utilise full speed of ram. (2x4Gb=8Gb 1600mhz=3200mhz =3.2ghz) vs (2x8Gb=16Gb 1333mhz=2666mhz=2.6ghz).
    buy transcend ram via transcend.com (lifetime warranty)
    other manufacturers only give 1year warranty.
    axeram (for gamers 2133mhz +oc (2year warranty )or ordinary ram (lifetime warranty ).

  4. This is the link to memory support list for your motherboard. http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z77%20Extreme6/?cat=Memory
    Go with dual channel, if you plan to overclock you can go higher than 1600 mhz.
