Im trying to figure out best ram for sabertooth z77 with a i7 3770k processor. Ive read alot of facts about ram and even spoke with tech support at Asus about this matter, although I was 100 percent confident in his knowledge, some pausing and hesitating. Anyway, I see wear people have made good suggestions for ram for this motherboard, however the ones mentioned by the good people in the forums arent listed in the sabertooth z77 QVL( qualified vendors list). Does this mean dont dare shop outside this list or you are doomed? Or is the list more like an encouragement to buy from there partners which is fine too. Alot of ram says compatible with socket 1155 boards but are not necissarily on there list. Help?
