Comparing brands of ram

I noticed that on a mobo manufacturer website, I forget which one, their list of memory that their mobos support only lists about 4 or so select brands of memory. I want to buy cheap memory. Assuming that the mobo supports the same ddr, speed, and amount of ram including the number of sticks, are there certain brands or models of memory which won't be supported by certain mobos?

  1. As long as the memory is the proper type (DDR/DDR2/DDR3), and the voltages and frequencies fit within the specified range of the motherboard, I can see no reason why it would be "incompatible".
  2. Don't buy cheap no-name memory modules and you'll be fine. It is better to buy matched sticks than single sticks.

    Which means they had tested the motherboards with those memories,and they didn't said that other memories are not compatible!
