I was reading other treads about compatibility, but i'm a total fool so i'll ask if Gigabyte's GA-Z77-D3H motherboard, which has listed support for DDR3 2400(OC)/1600/1333/1066 MHz memory modules, is compatible with 4GBx2 1866 MHz g.skill ripjawsx RAM, which didn't have the DH3 listed as a supported motherboard.

the ram configurator on the g.skill site lists the memory in the list of compatible memories when the d3h is used but on clicking the memory it does not show the D3H as a qualified motherboard,,

You should be fine. The RAM will underclock to meet the specs of the board. On the off chance yours doesn't, you can set the speed in BIOS.

There's 1866 RAM on the QVL for that board, so it's fine. http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Memory/mb_memory_g...

It doesn't have that exact kit on the list, but there are G.Skill 1866 kits on it, so I don't foresee any problems. You'll have to set it to 1866 either with the XMP profile, or manually, when you first install it (you would for any 1866 RAM), but after that, all should be well.
