No that's the wrong Ram for your machine. I buy my RAM from here:
I've used these guys since 1986 and have never had a RAM failure. They carry good stuff with a Lifetime warranty.
$156.00 for the same amount I can't do :/
They can work but will run at 667MHz instead of 800MHz that your computer is capable of.
I am using just 667mhz on my 2008 Mac Pro from OWC. At that time they didn't have stocks of 800mhz and I was fine with 667mhz.
It will work perfectly fine in your MP. You won't even notice 133 MHz difference.
Can you use 8GB of 800MHz in riser A and 8GB of 667MHz in riser B?
Also would all RAM run at 667MHz or would it work at different both clock speeds?
If 800MHz for riser A is this RAM loaded (used) first (or what is the order of use)?
Do you mean a pair of 800MHz RAM in riser A and a pair of 667MHz RAM in riser B? Yes, this would work. All ram will run at 667MHz.
The proper sequence to add RAM is outlined here.
2 pair of 800MHz in riser A and 2 pair of 667MHz in riser B.
All will run at 667MHz.
I have used it and as mentioned it works at 667 - you won't notice it except in your pocketbook. You can mix and match with a high probability of it working. Install in slots as recommended. Reset pram when you get a chance.
