I got a new motherboard and didn't realize that my previous ram would not fit in my new mobo.

I got a ASROCK H170 Pro4 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157639

Can someone please help me find a link to ram that would work? I saw this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231884&cm_re=2133-_-20-231-884-_-Product and it's 288pin so it seems like it would fit, but it just doesn't visually look the right dimensions so I wanted to get reassurance before purchasing anything.

Thanks!
 
288 pin ddr4 is all the same and is what you need. your motherboard cannot run ram any faster than 2133mhz. you can still use faster ram but your motherboard will down clock it. but with faster ram you might be able to tighten the timings.

you posted a link to 16gb of ram? do you need that much? is your build color matched? do you need a specific color?

if you just want any 16gb kit for a good price...
