^Forget about the 24 issue. The real problem is that the colors don't match!!!

btw, the box of the CPU is wrong: first it's not an Extreme Edition and second they now look different for SNB-E
I got the kit really cheap Sure i will get spare ram but the kit was cheap for the 24GB

Spare RAM? I count 6 DIMMs but your mobo has 8 DIMM slots. You wont have any spare RAM. You will have two open DIMM slots though. You could always occupy them with 2x4GB DIMMS for a total of 32GB.

lol... naw I posted before your prior one where you stated they hadn't even packed your hardware yet. If you can return it and swap it for more suitable RAM, then that's what I'd do. I was just agreeing with you.
