    Qualified vendor lists are generally very confusing and I don't usually go by them, I look at what the motherboard accepts for ram. What voltage, 1.5v, 1.65v, 1.85, 2,0 and so on. Then I look at what frequencies, 1066, 1333, 600, 1866 and so on. Then it's dual channel, triple channel or quad channel.
    After looking at the G.Skill Sniper model and the motherboard you want, the G.Skill ram will work in that MB.

    Thanks for conferming........
  3. Your welcome, as I had said qualified vendor lists are confusing and both the MB and the ram will have that and what ends up happening is that they really can't test everything. There are too many ram sets and too many different MBs so what they do test they list. Many times I have bought a MB and looked at the Q vendor list for the ram I want to get and it's not there, but I get it anyways and it always works fine. You may notice when you put the ram in that it shows the ram as 1333mhz and that's because it may be the default of the MB to set it at that so all you have to do is use the drop down net to the ram speed and select 1600 or chose the XMP Profile which will set it at that also.
  4. thx
    when the ram is installed does it automatically set to 1600mhz or have to do manually.
    If manually what are the steps have to take to run the ram at 1600mhz or chose the XMP Profile in both the MB.......
    and whats "drop down net to the ram speed"
