Will 8Gb DDR-III 2133MHz Corsair Vengeance Pro (CMY8GX3M2A2133C11) (2x4Gb KIT) work with ASUS Z87 PRO or I need ASUS Z87 Deluxe ?

It will work with either board. Just enable XMP in BIOS to get it to run at it's rated speed.

IS there a reason you want that particular ram? There are similarly priced kit wwith better specs if you're not already tied to that memory...

No feel free to suggest any and I will check availability where i live,
my question is mainly about the clock speed compatibility.

with a 4770k, and that board 2400 should be simple, and higher is pretty likely... here are a few suggestions...

Same CL, but 2400 mhz, likely cheaper

lower CL, same speed likely cheaper.


Lower CL and Higher speed (best kit of the bunch, but is more expensive)

If you can't find them in your area, you can go to the Gskill site and email their sales staff and see what solution they have for you, I'm sure they can find a way to get you memory :)
