Couple problems right away:

1.) Motherboard and CPU are not compatible, look for a socket 2011 motherboard with an x79 chipset. The motherboard you have chosen is for the dual memory chanel Ivy-bridge / Sandy Bridge CPUs, which are a bit slower for CFD.

2.) If you are going to use that CPU you should get at least 4 memory modules as it has 4 memory channals.

You still need to get a kit of at least 4 memory modules.

Whatever RAM you intend to use, buy it in a matched kit. So you could get a 4x4, 4x8 or since your motherboard has 8 slots you could even get a kit of 8 memory modules. You don't want to get only two because then you are running only two of the four memory channels that CPU has.
