Will this memory work with my asus MB..about to order pleaes help

ok so i purchased a 3570k and Asus P8Z77-V Pro from micro center and im about to order the rest of the stuff from newegg. i am looking at this g skill ram.. its not listed on the tested RAM list for my MB but it is still 1.5 v ddr3 1600

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231445

some peple say to be safe stay with the tested RAM and some people say if the volts and whatever else is correct it will be fine

    Yes it should work, I have a 3570k with a P8Z77-V and 8Gb of G.Skill Ripjaws Z 1600MHz and it works just fine.

    yes i know there are g skills that will work but what i am saying is...the specific RAM that i linked above..the model number isnt on the motherboards officially tested RAM...it has lower CL and timings then the model which IS on the list

    As far as I can tell, the Ram that you have chosen is identical to mine, but with 8-8-8-24 timings as opposed to my 9-9-9-24 timings. So worst case scenario is that you have to run it at CL9 timings, but I very much doubt you will have any problems at all. By all means though, check with a few others to make sure, but I think it is extremely unlikely that it won't work.
