When it comes to ram requirements, the manual will clearly state what it needs or accepts. Just review that, find it on your mtrbd. install disc, the manual in some .PDF file. The http://www.crucial.com is a ram ordering site that also supplies ram, check there if ram sticks are supported. They're usually very correct, however the manual is the absolute source of this info.
I am new to PC build.
I ordered corsair 8GB (2*4GB pack) ram from amazon, but they mistakenly shipped the 1*8GB pack to me.
Because I am going to install the ram to the Asus Z87 pro motherboard, I wonder if the motherboard will support single channel ram well. I don't really care about the speed difference between 2*4GB and 1*8GB since I plan to add another ram stick in the future.
I just wonder if a single 8GB ram will work on that board without causing any problems.
Thank you for your help!
