Gigabyte Mobo/G.Skill RAM compatibility

Hey guys,

So I'm building my first computer, and I had a quick question about RAM/Motherboard compatibility. The motherboard I'm probably going to end up buying is the Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3H-B3.

After checking the supported RAM list for this mobo on Gigabyte's website, I'm still not quite sure whether this RAM will be compatible. The RAM is the G.Skill DDR3 1600 Ripjaw Model F3-12800CL9S-4GBRL (4 GBs). The reason I am still unsure is because the supported RAM list states that it does not include all supported RAM out there. The list includes many similar models.

I was just curious if anyone knew offhand whether this combo would be compatible. Thanks in advance!


Other thoughts: I plan on buying two of these sticks (should they be compatible with the mobo)
Intel Core i5-2500
HIS Radeon HD 6870
OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Modular PSU

  1. Well since I don't really think I'm going to be NEEDING 8 gigs of RAM, I didn't really want to spend 80 bucks for that much. Buying two sticks of the RAM I mentioned above will only cost about $60 because of the sale on Newegg right now.

    So my question stands: Is THIS memory compatible with THIS motherboard?
