Hi, I'm going to buy the FRY bundle which is the

Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz
MSI P67A-GD65 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard.

I already have all the other parts already except RAM.
I'm not sure which type of RAM to purchase.
Would this work well for this computer?

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL

Thanks!!!!
 
Solution
The 1.5 V ripjaws will work just fine, they will be stable at the settings that the board defaults them to so you shouldnt have any issues on first boot, but you will want to set their speed and timings manually to get them running at their rated 1600MHz.
