Check the manufacturer's website... If you can't find it, I can try.

I don't know... Don't write off that Mobo because of others experience's with RMAs and stuff. I have a MSI P67a-gd65, that had to be RMAd, but it works very well now.

I dont see this certain specific model on list but specs say it should be supported and a very close model to this is supported...?

Can you give me a link? I need to check the model number.... Chances are, the memory is supported, anyway, but you can never be too sure.

Where did you buy the memory, or where are you planning on buying it? I need a model number to cross-reference.

Please stop posting, since you're not being helpful, but restating an opinion with no obvious basis in fact.

Okay, I checked it, and it isn't on the list at all. That doesn't mean it isn't compatible, but just that it hasn't specifically been tested by Gigabyte.

If you want to be 100% sure that it will work, go with these:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
This set is an older model, but it still works fine.

I actually have the G. Skill RipJaws X series in my computer, and I have no issues with it. In fact, I was able to lower the CL from 9 to 8 on all four sticks I bought. There is very little real chance that the memory will be incompatible.

I can't tell you to buy it, however, since it isn't specifically mentioned on the list, but, because its older version is on it, I think you're pretty safe in using it.

According to reviews on the RAM, the sticks work fine on the Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3, which is the same as the one you are getting, but without the internal SSD.

You shouldn't have any issues.

I didn't ask and nothing happened to me, so I think the memory will work fine. They are generally compatible with everything.

Without CPU and RAM, it won't POST. If you can't get it to turn on when you're building it, just try one stick of memory in each slot, to see where the problem is.

If it keeps restarting (like mine did), you have to RMA one of the components. My motherboard was the issue, so I sent it in to MSI to exchange it.

I'm sorry, but I don't know how to test a power supply. Maybe hook up a single case fan? And see if the power supply can turn on the fan?

For sure you need a CPU to POST.

I've used plenty of Gigabyte, Asus and MSI boards and the only reason I went with Asus this time around, was the UEFI bios that Gigabyte didn't have. Actually the only Mobo makers I avoid are ECS, Biostar and Foxconn.

Computer hardware, mass production, defects just happen. So every company will have good and bad feedback. To protect yourself from falling into the bad feedback, keep track of your return/RMA policies and time frame. It is the vendor's responsibility that you initially receive a good working product; that is what you are paying for. After the return/RMA period, then you have to deal with manufacturers and such, so things can get more complicated.

andy80,

The memory is compatible, so you should have no issues. Without a CPU and memory, it's like talking to a person with no head.

Thank you
