Motherboard: ASUS z87-Pro
Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL10D-16GBXL

The motherboard manual does not include the ram in the capability lists, but I want to know if there is any way I can make them work, or if I have to return them and buy more.
And what should I get to replace them?

The sticks should be fine with your mobo, the QVL lists are pretty worthless really, see here:

Simply install, go to BIOS enable XMP and select Profile 1

With a good i5 or i7 CPU, you should have no problem at all. Just enable the XMP Profile under "Ai Overclock Tuner" in the Advanced section of BIOS/EFI, then everything will be ready to go.

Thank you
