Is my ram compatible with this mobo and cpu?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey I was building up my shopping cart on newegg for my new build and i came accross this detail on my mobo that says

DDR3 1800(O.C.)/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066 (AMD AM3 100 and 200 series CPU support up to DDR3 1066MHz)

Does this mean i will only be able to run my ram at 1066mhz speed max?!?!? please he ty! Here are my components...

ASUS M4A78LT-M AM3 AMD 760G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

AMD Phenom II X4 840 3.2GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor HDX840WFGMBOX

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9S-

That ram will work fine with that motherboard, and you don't have a 100 or 200 series cpu...it's an 840!
