I am building a new computer from scratch and i have most of it picked out except for what ram to go with this MotherBoard and this CPU. My uncle told me that the ram has to "match" the motherboard and CPU. Currently i am looking at this set of RAM but i don't know how to tell if this is compatiable. Can anyone help me figure out?

Thanks for looking at it for me but, can you tell me how you determined this? I would like to know for the future.
@Blaze I hope I don`t need the luck. But just in case i will keep it in my backpocket.

Most motherboard manufacturers have a list of "Compatable RAM" on their website:
http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/t-series/...rt.php?S_ID=428

Just because RAM isn't listed, doesn't mean it won't work fine. Manufacturers just cannot test every memory combo out there.

My own personal preference in DDR3 (or any other memory for that matter) is max performance at the lowest voltage. As an example:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....mp;Order=RATING

Some of that 1600 speed RAM does that speed at 1.5V.

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

3770K @4.5, Corsair H100, GTX780, 16gig Samsung, Obsidian 700 (yes there is a 700)

how i determined it was under the specification page on the ram it said that it was ddr3 1333 240pin ram (number of memory slots box) and under the specification page on ure motherboard it has listed that it uses 240pin ram and it has listed that it can take ddr3 1333 under the memory standard box
