Memory Compatibility

I have ordered an Asus Sabertooth X58. Does anyone know if it is compatible with memory not listed in the qualified vendors list. I was thinking of ordering this, but wouldn't want to if it can't run properly in triple channel mode.

Hope someone can help

Thanks in advance

  1. What RAM kit do you have in mind?
  2. The RAM kit displayed in the link.
    6 Gb Corsair Dominator triple channel kit at 7-8-7-20
    manufacturer's ref: CMP6GX3M3A1600C7
  3. Good choice. The RAM isn't in the QVL but doesn't mean that the RAM can't works. Corsair is a good manufacturer and maybe you don't get problems running that RAM in the mobo at rated speeds.
  4. So usually RAM that fits similar descriptions is still likely to work, even if not on any QVL?
  5. Yeah, the QVL is only and approved RAM because has been tested with the mobo, but that doesn't mean that only that RAM works with the mobo.
  6. Thanks for your help. Went for it. Wish me luck :)
  7. Your welcome, let me know if you need more help. ;)
