Z77 with 3x4GB of ram?

Hey guys! I'm new to the PC building world so I'm sorry if I say or ask some noobish questions haha.

Anyways I bought a P8Z77-V Pro and 12 GB (3x4GB) of ram. Can I run all of sticks on the z77 or will I have to run 2 sticks until I can buy 1 more card so I can use all 4 slots?

The ram - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9T-12GBRL

The MB - ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Should I buy this extra stick of ram ? Or will I be able to run the 3 sticks on that mobo with no problems?

Thanks in advance :D

    Are you sure? In the manual it says that it supports 1, 2 and 4 RAM stick configurations but it doesn't say anything about 3. :/
  3. Just try it! i am sure it will support.
  4. You won't get dual channel which speeds up memory access, but it should work OK.
