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.
