Summary: The specs said DDR3 1600 was acceptable for the motherbaord. And it is. As long as you don't try to put in more than 8 GB. Above that, and you get crashes. Had this 6 months, don't overclock. My thermal sensor for the board is registering -76.0 F. Still waiting on the RMA from ASUS.
Pros: Good price, installed easily
Cons: MUST go to their website for memory compatibility, Motherboard sensors failed within 6 months.
