Ram Compatibility Question,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,?

I ordered MB: ASUS Z87 - PRO
and RAM : 8Gb DDR-III 2133MHz Corsair Vengeance (CMZ8GX3M2A2133C11R) (2x4Gb KIT) . timing 11-11-11-27
problem is when I start read the motherboard ram support list from asus website at this link http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1150/Z87-PRO/Z87-PRO_DRAM_QVL_1029.pdf
I found that my particular model not listed under the 2133 section! but there is another CORSAIR model there.
Is that mean that I might have some compatibility issues? I still have time to change the order So what do think guys?

  1. Best answer
    Should be fine, the mobo makers test with whatever they have available - would suggest looking for better sticks though 1600 with CL9 is considered entry level and these are a high CL of 11 - I'd suggest 1600/9 as a minimum or even 1866 or 2133 with CL9 would be better as Haswell scales well to DRAM and all would provide a good performance boost
