Hi, XMP certified memory will work just fine with a H87 based motherboard.
Hello Werner and thanks for your reply,
Actually, the motherboard I have in mind is the ASUS H87M-E.
It looks like DDR3 1866 and higher are supported from the ASUS' memory qualified vendor list,http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/H87ME/#support_QVL
But wouldn't it be a waste of money to purchase something higher than DDR 1600 on a H87 chipset motherboard, and without an overclockable CPU (non "K" Haswell) ?
From what I read, memory overclock isn't feasible without CPU overclock, but I am not 100% sure and can't find a good review for this motherboard yet.
