Default RAM Help!!

I just purchased everything to make my first build. On the RAM I bought it say that it is designed for Intel LGA1156 but I'm building a LGA 1366. Isn't RAM universal?

Here are links to the RAM and MB...

Newegg.com - EVGA 141-GT-E770-A1 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9S-4GBRL

That RAM should be fine with that motherboard. The real question is why are you buying a single stick of RAM for a triple channel MoBo?

If you already purchased it, might as well try it out, if it doesn't boot just return the ram.

I have 3 sticks 4gb each... it's all the same ram so I didn't specify how many sticks.

First of all, welcome to TF, Tyr525. Nice to see another Pennsylvanian on here :P My first question is, why are you building a 1366 based system, and what are the other components you've purchased or plan on purchasing?

For gaming. My current pc can't keep up. And I got done putting it all together and the ram worked just fine.
