does G.SKILL RipjawsX DDR3 8GB (4GB x 2) 1866MHz CL9 Dual Channel Ram work on Asus P8H61 -M LE R2.0 MotherBoard?

i'm planing to buy a G.Skill Memory but i don't know does it work on my motherboard or not.

Motherboard: ASUS P8H61 -M LE R2.0

Edit: updated ram link! the ram is 1866 my bad...

  1. The RAM clock speed is too high for the motherboard you are using. Buy RAM that is clocked at 1333MHz not 1600MHz. There is a chance that the 1600MHz might work in the 1333MHz board but it is a hit and a miss and depends on the board. If you want it to 100% work then buy 1333MHz RAM.
  2. here is a review about this motherboard form newegg:

    Pros: I bought these on when on sale so they where cheaper than the 1333 model. My motherboard is an Asus p8h61-M so it only supports 1066 and 1333 speed. With this ram, i was able to get the timings stable at 1066 and cas latency of 6-6-6-19. This is almost identical to the stock timings.

    speed is (cas latency/Mhz) so

    It run's beautiful and also dropped my BF3 load times from 2 minutes to about 45 seconds. (Going from 4GB 9-9-9-24 1333Mhz) to this.

    Cons: Nothing yet, Only have had a month if anything goes wrong i will edit.

    Other Thoughts: As of right now, would buy this again and again and again.

    i'm not pretty sure about this...
    is their any users tested this ram on this motherboard?
  3. Is this your board ?

    Memory Standard = DDR3 2200(O.C.)/2133(O.C.)/2000(O.C.)/1866(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066

    If your particular board is a different variation, and is limited to 1066 or 1333, no worries. When RAM is advertised at 1600, that, as the package and specs say is the XMP profile. The memory SPD will have other profiles pre-loaded. These include:

    JEDEC timings table CL-tRCD-tRP-tRAS-tRC @ frequency
    JEDEC #1 6.0-6-6-16-22 @ 457 MHz
    JEDEC #2 7.0-7-7-19-26 @ 533 MHz
    JEDEC #3 8.0-8-8-22-30 @ 609 MHz
    JEDEC #4 9.0-9-9-24-33 @ 685 MHz
    JEDEC #5 10.0-10-10-27-37 @ 761 MHz
    JEDEC #6 11.0-11-11-28-39 @ 800 MHz

    You can select the XMP or JEDEC profile in the BIOS:

    Picking JEDEC # 6 will run the ram at 2 x 800 or 1600
    Picking JEDEC # 4 will run the ram at 2 x 685 or 1370
    Picking JEDEC # 3 will run the ram at 2 x 609 or 1218
    Picking JEDEC # 2 will run the ram at 2 x 533 or 1066

    So if the board can handle only 1066, just pick JEDEC 2

    Then the Motherboard can handle any of those speeds listed ....

    * 1600MHz and higher frequency is supported by Intel® 3rd generation processors.
    * The maximum 16GB memory capacity can be supported with 8GB or above DIMMs. ASUS will update the memory QVL once the DIMMs are available in the market.
    * Refer to for the Memory QVL (Qualified Vendors Lists).
    * Due to OS limitation, when installing total memory of 4GB capacity or more, Windows® 32-bit operation system may only recognize less than 3GB. Install a 64-bit Windows® OS when you want to install 4GB or more memory on the motherboard.
    * Due to the CPU behavior, DDR3 2133/1866MHz memory module will run at DDR3 2000/1800MHz frequency as default.
  6. @JackNaylorPE

    i'm updated the link the ram is 1866... sorry...
    my Cpu is Pentium G630
    can this ram run at 1333?
  7. As per the two quotes above, it runs at

    2133(O.C.) ... runs at 2000
    1866(O.C.) ... runs at 1800

    IIRC, the G630 is a 2nd generation CPU .... you need 3rd generation to go at 1600 and above

    The initial spec for the G630 lists 1066. But looking at the image here:

    That's a G630 and it's giving higher options.

    Here's the RAM, the 1866 stuff

  8. Ok but i can't upgrade my cpu right now... 1333 is enough for me! but one more question:
    can this ram run at 1333?

    Yes you can underclock RAM. You would also have to adjust that in the BIOS settings if your motherboard supports it.
  10. Again...

    MoBo supports up to 2200
    CPU apparently supports up to 2 x 761 = 1522 (see 1st image above)
    JEDEC #4 on the RAM says it can run at 2 x 685 = 1370 (see 2nd image above)

    I have seen folks on Win 7 running 1600 on that CPU

    As long as you don't exceed those numbers, you can pick any speed the BIOS offers you.
  11. @JackNaylorPE so i can use this ram?
    thank you

    thank you

    He answered you like 3 times YES YOU CAN USE THIS RAM.
  13. Thank you @Crapcicle and big thanks to @JackNaylorPE.
