Just recently purchased a asrock oc formual motherboard. I checked the memory compatibility on the web site and my current ram was not on there (but it does support the speed). I also check on a site that was testing the board and they were also using memory that wasnt on the compatability list. I wanted to know if it really mattered on not if my memory was on that list.
I did, this was just a last minute decision since i wanted to get everything ordered yesterday. Im deploying in november and want to have time to play with everything. It was probably not a good decision but couldnt be any worse than the last build i did.
