Hi there, so I've found the 6GB RAM I want to use http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... as you can see its model number is "F3-12800CL8TU-6GBPI"
and my motherboard supported Memory list has something similar but is F3-"12800CL8T-6GBPI" (the 'u' is missing)now does this mean it isn't compatible? or does it make no difference and is just a random letter.

I've never boughten parts for my own computer (I'd hate to order it with my new build and have something not worked because of a letter) and have very little experience with computers (enough, kind of)like I mentioned in a previous thread asking about 4gb vs 6gb vs 8gb.

Thanks again.

The motherboard memory support list is just the list that the manufacturer has sat down and tested and guarentees will work, 99% of ram that isnt on the list will still work perfectly fine. That gskill kit should work perfectly fine on that motherboard.
