Not sure about the RAM it wasn't specific enough also Make sure the i5 CPU you get is LGA 1155 though, not sure if all of them are.

Other than that you're good.

Since you don't mention what i5 cpu or what ram, can't tell you if it's compatible or not.

Oh here,

CPU:Intel® - Core™ i5-2500K Quad-Core 3.3GHz Processor

RAM: AMD Performance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600MHz Desktop Memory

And possibly this instead of the i5

2nd Gen Core i7-2600K 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo)

No reason just picked one that worked for me, mostly i wanted the crossfireX support, other than that i just picked it so that Intel processors work.
