It should work fine, but it would be best to buy 2 kits and run it in triple channel.

Just a heads up...
I had to send a kit back because W7 Home Premium can only use 16gig.
I could see 32gig installed but 16gig usable.

Memory Limits for Windows Releases (Windows)

Anyway 16gigs is way enough for me.
