Default Motherboard and ram question.

I'm making a new build soon but I have a slight problem and was hoping someone could help me solve it anyways here I go. The motherboard i'm currently looking into supports 6x 240 pin ddr3 slots, it can be found here on this link in the code.
But I want to make absolutely sure that all the ram i'm buying will fit into all 6 slots. The ram i'm buying is 3 sticks 2 gig per stick x 2, so 6 sticks 2 gigs per stick. The ram i'm looking at can be found in this link here thanks for advice and help provided!

Default Re: Motherboard and ram question.

Is there any reason you need 12Gb? Are you a video editor, working with LARGE files? For gaming and anything but really heavy duty image or video manipulation. 6Gb is plenty. You'll find you won't even use most of it half the time.

If you really want 12GB though, check this ram instead - OCZ Gold 12GB (6 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G1600LV12GS
