    According to the memory model you gave me it is Triple Channel DDR3 1333MHz. According to the Motherboard model you provided this should work just fine.

    But You also want to make sure you are installing a 64bit OS to maximize the use of the memory or else it will only recognize up to 3.5 – 4gb of the memory.
