Is it compatible with an asus p8z77-i deluxe itx motherboard?

I know it is compatable with the asus p8z77-v, the atx counterpart but i couldn't find anything about the itx.

Many thanks in advance

Well if you want a good change of compatibility of just about any RAM set to just about any new-ish mobo, just make sure you have RAM that runs at stock voltage (1.5v) and you will usually have a set that should run on just about any mobo. There are exceptions, but if you stick with major brands (Corsair, Crucial, G.Skill (my favorite), Patriot, Adata) you will have a better change of support too.

The stock voltage is 1.5v with a z77 chipset. So it's likely it would work with a p8z77-i deluxe?
The motherboard isn't listed on their site: http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=511
However every other asus z77 motherboard is listed including the p8z77-v which is just an atx version of the p8z77-i deluxe which is why i wasn't sure if it was just an over sight.

Nah you should be okay. There isn't a 100% for sure on it, but I'd say 99.9% chance you should be fine.

Thanks

Your welcome. I would say your going to be fine, just use Memtest86 to verify that both sticks are working correctly. This way you can have peace of mind when you are still within the 30 day return that most online vendors offer.
