Asus X79 Pro correct ram choice?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I recently ordered a new computer with the specs below.

CPU - Intel i7 3930k
MOBO - Asus P9X79-PRO,Socket 2011,X79, 8DDR3,4PCI-E 3.0,GbLANRaid,
Case - Corsair Carbide 500R Black Mid-Tower Case No PSU,
DVDRW - Samsung 22X DVDRW Black SATA ,
PSU - Seasonic 1000W 80Plus Platinum Full Modular,
GPU - Sapphire ATI HD7970 3GB GDDR5 2MDP/HDMI,
HD - OCZ Agility 3 120G SATA3 SSD
Cooling - Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H100 High-performance CPU Cooler
RAM - 16GB G.Skill[ RipjawsZ ] F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH (4Gx4)

The only issue was that went over my budget to afford the expensive psu and in doing so i down graded the MOBO from a Asus P9X79 Deluxe to the Pro (as seen above). At the time i could not see much of a difference between the two board other than wifi and some other minor features. After going through my build again this morning i noticed that the MOBO i have changed to is not qualified to run the ram i have chosen. This is based on the g.skill website [http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=438].

Will i experience any issues with the ram off the bat or when i decide to overclock it to 2133mhz?

That board will run just fine with that ram, I have that same ram in my Asus x79 board and it runs like a champ.
