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

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.

So usually RAM that fits similar descriptions is still likely to work, even if not on any QVL?

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.
