    That mobo comes with 8gb of ares 1600 ram so just get 8gb more of the 1600. Very little difference from 1600 to 1866.
  2. May want to swap out that Ram for this type:

    G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231489

    This is 1600 and the one you posted is 1866, don't Get me Wrong i am sure you could get it to work, but it may not Post and you may have to Monkey around with the Settings ..

    I also just Seen if you buy that MoBo you get a Free set of Ram id say just use that Free 8GB 1600 Ram, 8 GB is Great for Gaming and 16GB Won't Help Game's at all if any, Plus you have two Slots free to upgrade later if wanted .


    Anyways Just my Two Cents
  3. I got the 8GB from the Mobo + 8GB more to make 16. My main use is going to be high res 3D modeling so the RAM is useful.

    Thanks for the input!
