Board makers can't test all the models of ram; they don't have the time. If the gskill is non ecc desktop ram with 240 pins, it should work fine with the gigabyte board. If newegg carries it, check the specs for it under "details". Most of the ddr3 has timings of 9-9-9-24. And most of it runs fine at 1.6 volts, which is the default voltage on many boards.
