  1. Yes, should be compatible.
  2. You haven't given us the model number of the RAM, but the motherboard does support DDR3 2133 RAM. Check the official Asus RAM support page to see if your specific model number is listed as compatible.

  3. G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL11D-8GBXL is the memory I purchased. The VQL doesn't have G.skill on the list for 2133 memory though. Just wanted to see if it is compatible and will run flawless off the first boot

    Thanks for the input! Reading more and more about it scares me. Some people say they needed to custom tune their setting and others say it worked fine. Just wanted to get a straight answer so I can flawlessly use 2133 g.skill ripjaws x no problem with my mobo


    The sticks are not listed as supported (I think), but that's because Asus doesn't have the time to test all the sticks that are available, so they should work. You'll probably have to manually adjust the speed, timings, and voltage in the BIOS, since 2133MHz is listed as "OC" in the specs of the board.

    EDIT: It will probably work just fine on first boot, but it might be automatically underclocked.

    All you should have to do is select a DOCP RAM profile similar to XMP profiles on Intel systems to get the RAM running at its rated specs. It will likely run at slower speeds and looser timings for compatibility reasons out of the box until you select the correct DOCP profile. The motherboard owners manual should tell you how to select the DOCP profile in the AI Tweaker section of the BIOS.
  6. So selecting DOCP in the AI Tweaker section of the BIOS will automatically optimize my settings to run my 2133 ripjaw smoothly?
  7. That's its function, yes.
  8. Thank you for your input. I'm considering defaulting it down to 1866 at first and a month or two down the road put it at its
    maximum (O.C.) 2133 as the mobo states
