Asking AFTER you bought it all?

Your MB and the RAM will work things out between them.

CPU and MB are a good match.

The 3 stick pack of RAM? Not so much. It's a set intended for a triple channel motherboard and not your dual channel (2 stick sets) motherboard.
It will probably work 'OK' anyway.

The MB can read the RAM specs and choose how to set it up. It will probably start out with a very conservative setting. You'll have a chance to tweak the settings once you figure out how much you want to work the settings.

i have been reading online about that and some people say to put the 3 sticks in the 3 DIMM slots next to the CPU. is this true?

I think you could save $50 with a 8GB 2/stick kit of 1600 RAM.
That's a pretty dramatic savings.

I'd have to read the manual to confirm that - but it sounds right.

While you're waiting for delivery you can download the online version of the motherboard manual and start getting familiar with it.
