I am looking through the manual and it shows a list of P8Z77-M Motherboard Qualified Vendors Lists (QVL). Now is this motherboard limited to those listed in manual? Or can I use a different ram that is not listed in the manual? To be more specific, I have the F3-10666CL9S-4GBRL Gskill ram. Reason why I'm asking is because my desktop is bsoding so I'm trying to figure out if it's the ram or the CPU. Recently switched to a New PSU and it's still giving the error. Also got this new motherboard because my old motherboard stopped working.

If it's a new motherboard, did you re-install Windows?

That memory should work. The QVL is just a list of RAM modules/kits that have been tested. There is no feasible way to test every module/kit of RAM on the market.

Good point is the new motherboard exact replacement or different needing new drivers?

I just swapped it with my gaming desktop's ram. It still won't work but the spare ram that I was using on the non-working desktop is working in my gaming desktop so now I can rule out the ram. Is it possible that because my motherboard died, my cpu also died as well?

EDIT: I get a bsod when I try to do a fresh install of windows. It bsods at the window logo screen.

I have only seen that with bad ram before.

I've used my gaming rams to test out and it did not work so I doubt that is the issue here.

Agree we may be looking at a bad motherboard since you are starting from windows install media not using your HDD at all so really between the board, ram and CPU with the CPU as the least likely but possible.

It's a brand new motherboard but in case that is the issue, I'm getting a replacement for it. I can access bio and such through the mobo.

That is the tricky part, it is really hard to tell for sure which component it is without swapping parts.

Yes I know. I've swapped the PSU, RAM, and MOBO so far so it's down the CPU (possibly mobo).
