any issues with my current specs? thanks.
Based on the fact that you don't have specs listed, it should work just fine. ;)

Hi

This RAM kit [Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10)] *may not work as intended due to motherboard restrictions; according to the manual DDR3 slot A1,B1,A2 & B2 only support 4Gb memory modules

Manual

Source - http://www.biostar-usa.com/app/en-us/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=482#dl

Note: only one 4Gb memory kit was tested at Biostar [TEAM TED34096M1333C9]

Source - http://www.biostar-usa.com/app/en-us/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=482#memory

although this list was not exhaustive [*"This is not a full listing but a memory guide used for testing"] looking at the motherboard bios updates, Biostar do not appear to have updated memory compatibility at this time *and or if possible.

atb (all the best)

It should work fine, your board says it supports 4 DIMM supported DDR3-1800(OC)/1600(OC)/1333/1066, the 1.5v for the memory is the DDR3 standard.

Perhaps someone with an AMD system can chime in too.

Edit: Law-II is da man.

Edit2: Support Dual Channel DDR3 1800(OC)/1600(OC)/1333/1066/800 MHz
4 x DDR3 DIMM Memory Slot
Max. Supports up to 16GB Memory <- this, meaning you may need to get 4x4GB to use the total 16GB MB capacity.

Hi -PM sent

Corsair Vengeance 8 GB ( 2 x 4 GB ) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) 240-Pin DDR3 Memory Kit for Core i3, i5, i7 and Platforms SDRAM CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 should work fine; looking at the settings for the motherboard bios; there is enough room to tweak the memory timings if required

nb: you will not see a large drop in performance with 8Gb over 16Gb and may get better OC in general if desired
