My experience with G Skill ram has been very favorable. I would look to a faster set of G Skill ram modules with at least 1866-2400 mhz they won't cost much more and XMP will dial them in without any fuss ! I would also go with 2 x 4gb modules as this way if you want or need later to grow to 16gb ram you can just order another matched pair.

It is best to look at the G.Skill RAM Configurator site. Maybe the old Ram will be compatible but it doesn't appear to be listed for your new motherboard.

I'd wager that it may not have been tested due to age. Not surprising considering how many models G.Skill has.
