A few weeks ago, I asked a question for a graphics card recommendation, here

What I'm planning to buy is:

  • Processor: Intel i7 6700k,
  • GPU: 2x (SLI) 980TI,
  • Motherboard: ASUS Z170-A ATX

Now I need to choose the RAM, and I'm kinda confused. I know this motherboard supports up to 64GB RAM (4 slots). So I want to max it now to not have problems to deal in the future.

I know 64GB ram is a lot, and I'll probably not use it all, but its just for convenience.

I'm thinking about this RAM

Is this a good option? Is there any way to improve it? Will this "Temperature Sensor" cause problems?

The RAM you've selected is incompatible with the rest of your parts. It is ECC (stores extra data in order to detect memory errors) registered (uses a special circuit to reduce the amount of power needed to drive signals) memory, while the CPU and mainboard you've selected only support regular (non-ECC, non-registered) memory.

  • sorry for the inconvenience, but this time I think I covered everything up, will this ram be compatible with the cpu/mobo? its non ecc, dimm, dual channel, unbuffered, Dec 18, 2015 at 1:52

    It should work.

  • I want to upgrade my ram. so before purchasing how can I determine whether a ram is compatible or not ? (maybe i should post question requesting comprehensive details)
