Hi i was looking at the Gigabyte GA-X79-UD3. in the specs it says it supports 1.5v ddr3 dimms. this is the ram i have.. would it be compatible with the motherboard though it is 1.35v?

The low voltage RAM will be compatible and they are very good for OC too.

Can try and chances are good it will work, however some mobos will require more than the 1.35 to run them as not many are set up for low voltage DRAM

How do I make sure it will work? Is there any info on the manufacturer's website?

Can check, off hand I don't know what they have on the site, might look at QVL, which is fairly worthless, but can see if any low voltage sticks in there

I've checked but it doesn't help. I should check every single part number and see if there's any LV. Plus according to the list the motherboard only supports up to 4gb 1600mhz sticks. Some 8gb ones @ 1333mhz. That's ridiculous cause it supports 32gb of ram and only has 4 memory slots, it has to support 8gb sticks from every and any vendor...
