    Hello I just ordered an ASUS P7H55-M PRO LGA 1156 Intel H55 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard and wasn't exactly sure which type of DDR3 ram to get. Like there is the DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) or the DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000), would both of these work or is there a certain type that it needs to have?

    Go to asus support and the download page for your motherboard there you will find two .pdf downloads under "qualified vendor list". Those contain lists of RAM tested to work with your motherboard. I just downloaded both and looked them over quickly. One list is for Clarkdales the other for Lynnfields.
