I can confirm that only those Asus LGA 1155 motherboards with the "WS" in the model name officially supports any of the LGA 1155 Xeons (as I discovered on the Asus Web site). In other words, only the...

Even without telling us the complete part number, I can tell you that your motherboard and CPU does not support that particular RAM at all. In fact, any Corsair part number beginning with "CMS" is...

As Wired stated, version numbers have nothing to do with the age of the RAM. The one- or two-digit number after the decimal point indicates which non-IC parts (such as the PCB) were used on the...

More than likely they'll work together but you might not be able to run two kits together at even the speed and latency timings of the lesser-performing kit. The two kits, especially if you're buying...

The Vengeance kit is rated at 1.5V at its advertised speed and timings unlike the Dominators which need 1.65V to run at their advertised specs. The 1.5V is better suited to newer 32nm Intel...

Unfortunately, if you put in two kits, you may have to run the memory at only 1333MHz speed. This is due to the increased loading in the memory controller - and 2133MHz kits are supported for only...

I missed that part.

The XMP profiles for LGA 1155 platforms are different from those of the earlier LGA 1366 and LGA 1156 platforms. Thus, the XMP profiles of existing Corsair modules are not...

Sure, your mobo can handle the 8GB at DDR3-1600 - but only if you use two 4GB sticks. The downside of two 4GB sticks is that they still cost substantially more than four 2GB sticks.
