I would check this list: Memory Support List to choose what speed, type, and how much RAM you'd like for your new board. There's also the Memory Configurator from Corsair's website. There is also this test I found for the fastest Corsair memory from the Memory Support List.

I chose this RAM because it's the max amount of supported memory the board can use, all 24GBs. Since my build isn't complete, I can't answer that yet.

If you're going to overclock your memory, the Corsair seems to overclock the best. If not, any supported RAM will do.

I finally got my build up and running and the Kingston RAM has been a pleasant surprise so far. My set runs the 1600 spec easily and I think I could do 1600 with less than the 1.65v that they are rated for.
Granted, I have only been functional for a week and I have plenty of tweaking in my future so this RAM may turn to crap in a week. (I'll post if it does)
This is the first set of Kingston RAM I have used in well over ten years and have always used Corsair in the past but, I went with what was available to me and was on the compatibility list. I tried a set of COrsiar that were not listed and it failed to boot and I was stuck for a couple of months without any RAM until a few weeks ago. Hope your build go well.
I'll try to help in anyway I can, I know I have managed to clear my CMOS at least a dozen times this week, so I know I have the BIOS down now
