  1. it will work perfectly fine, the manufacturer cant personally test all the different rams out there abnd the list is just example of the ones they did.
  2. Best answer
    Yes. It will run just fine. It's just not in the list because the manufacturer may have not tested it yet. Do note that once you plug it in your motherboard - it will run at stock(SPD) speeds.

    According to specs - it will run at 1333MHz at 1.5v as default

    You'll be needing to tweak your BIOS if you ever wanted to have higher clocks on your memory modules.

    I have to say that I have not been able to get this memory to work with this motherboard. I have gone through the tuning sequence and it constantly fails with Error 53. The only difference is that I have a Intel Core i5-4670K and the 1866MHz version of the RAM. I have searched for a solution but sadly I'm going to have to return the memory and get something else that's actually listed in the book.
  5. its all running fine now :) had some probs at first but moveing the ram around helped in the end
