I'm getting this mobo from Gigabyte.
Gigabyte Z68X-UD4-B3 ATX LGA1155 Z68 DDR3 2PCI-E16 2PCI-E1

With this memory, will it work?
Mushkin Enhanced Silverline Stiletto 8GB 2X4GB PC3-10666 DDR3-1333 9-9-9-24 Dual Channel

I see only 2 Mushkin RAM listed as working, but they don't seem to be the right ones.
So I wanted to double check.

The memory qvl listing is never complete. They should work fine. The board makers can't test all the different models and brands.

o1die, that's what a buddy told me.

Jaquith, that'd be the set of RAM.

Just never know these days, especially since there aren't many reviews about Mushkin.
But I've heard they're good.

I like Mushkin just fine, your question is will the set you listed 'work' and the answer is -- yes. Not all Mushkin, Corsair, Kingston, GSKILL are equal - those companies place the best IC's in their top line RAM.

It's not tops in my picks for LGA 1155; I prefer DDR3 1600 CAS 8/9 with the Sandy Bridge in most instances. My feeling the extra +$15 is worth the investment in your system.
