    Most memory suppliers have a memory configurator on their web sites. I don't see a reason why it won't work but it will be taller due to the heat pipe.... Also its not listed on your motherboards supported memory but thats doesn't mean it won't work.

    It's not good to mismatch your memory. You should go into your bios and be sure the voltage will go up to 2.2v before purchasing memory that needs to run at 2.2 or 2.3v
    The higher the speed but lower the voltage here the better.

    I believe what Conners is suggesting is good memory. It should work fine. You will have to remove your OCZ platinum and use the Corsair instead. You could just ad some more OCZ platinum but make sure it has the same part number because they make different types of OCZ platinum. What part number is your OCZ platinum memory anyways?

    I am modifying this post cause I may have mis-understood the original question. I took it as he wanted to replace the memory he had with 4 gb of the ram he mentioned. I did not take it as he wanted to add 2 gb of x memory to what he already had. If that's what he meant then my bad for not understanding and I apologize for that. Other wise...

    What I am suggesting is (although I never came out and said it) 1) either buy the same ram you have now to add to your system or 2) get what I suggest or what ever pleases you and/or matches and works for you. Numeral uno rule in memory is never mix ram (manufactures/types).

    You can but not the best scenario... Is that clear as mud?

    @Art..did you receive the water cooler you won yet?

    Alright, i was just unsure on what to get because on the Gigabye webpage there was a list of ram that works with the board and i have NO idea on what it all means.
    & i know not to mix ram lol.
