Solved Mobo compatible?

Specs: Windows Vista
I'm using a configurator at
I have alt to learn about compatibility when choosing components. Here's the mobo: (3-Way SLI Support) GigaByte GA-X58A-UD3R Intel X58 Chipset SLI/CrossFireX Ultra Durableā„¢3 Triple-Channel DDR3/1600 ATX Mainboard w/ 7.1 Dolby Audio, eSATA, GbLAN, USB3.0, 2 x SATA-III RAID, IEEE1394a, 4 Gen2 PCIe, 2 PCIe X1 & 1 PCI

Where's the spec that says how much/type RAM is can use?
Also is there a spec for cooling fans or power supply?

Does anyone know of a site that has good customer service to walk me through a build?

✔ Best Answer
You need to do some research. All you had to do is go to the Gigabyte website & all the questions about that board will be answered. You can even download the manual. Below is a link to the board - it can accept up to 24GB of "DDR3 2200/1333/1066/800 MHz memory modules"

Be very careful of which components you choose, especially the power supply. Do NOT accept the default unit in the configurator. Select a decent name brand unit & be sure to review the product specs. If you don't know what you're doing - ASK! The same can be said for ALL the components.

If I'm reading your post right, your board supports triple channel memory which means you need to buy triple channel memory which comes in sets of 3
