? bout compatabilty with z77 and 16gb

This memory is on sale 70.00

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL

The Mobo I am building on is an Extreme6 z77 Intel
CPU is an Intel 3770K

Here is the recommended compatibility from Asrock's site [...] 20Extreme6

I did not see the CL10 support just the 9 unless that is because of the ram size diff? Please advise.
There are other 8gb combo packs listed not this one though....*Note 1600mhz

    i have that ram in my z77 sabertooth. it runs fine. the issue with mb vendors is check the last date of the qa update most times the toss the ram guild up when the mb comes out and that it. sometime you have to email there tech supprt and ask for an updated ram list. or look on the ram vendor web page.
    the issue with ram today is most ram sellers buy on the spot market. you can have the same ram one with samsung ram that cl9 one month and the next there binning same part number with another ram vender ram.

  3. Smorizio,
    Thank you. Great link, best answer. Funny thing while "trying" to research whether or not it would Jibe. I found the same sized memory by Kingston I think it was "X" for 10 bucks less. Love these November deals! Where the working man can get a middle class computer.
