Last week, I bought this "G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9Q-16GBXL" ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ).

Originally, I was going to buy the Asus P8Z77-V motherboard ( http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8Z7... ), which listed that RAM in its QVL. But now, after doing more research, I found that the Asus P8Z77-V LE motherboard ( http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8Z7... ) suits me more in term of spec and budget. The problem is I can't find my RAM model in the P8Z77-V LE's QVL. So will this RAM be compatible with the P8Z77-V LE motherboard even though it's not in the QVL? I mean, why wouldn't it be, since it supports up to 32GB of RAM, right?

most mb vendors no3w only take a small sampling of vendor rams. most list are months old and incomplete. also to the fact that memory vendors change model numbers like candy. a good rule with memory is if the chipset that your using now the z77 if it just a small changes from x68 then most memory listed for the x68 will work fine. the only real change from the x68 to the z77 in that the z77 had the usb 3.0 built into the chipset. on looking at the x68 version of your mb they say that the ram should work in that mb. the problem is that list is almost a year old and the (q) line of your ram not listed but earlier version of the same ram are.
