  1. 9 times out of 10 it will. but it might require higher timings or slower speed to get it to work. but that much effort is rare.
  2. Ok cool thanks, hopefully it just recognizes it right because I'm definitely a noob. I've never built a pc before haha. If it isn't working right I'm not even sure I'll be able to tell
  3. The thing about RAM is that not every motherboard manufacturer is able to test every part out there. The list that's given is a general guideline - if it supports 1333 at 1.5V per 4GB chip, then it should support most any model 4GB/1333/1.5V. Most RAM manufacturers are aware of this, and if it's not supported you can always e-mail the motherboard manufacturer to see if there's a more up to date list.
  4. Ok thanks, it should be fine, I see lots of people pairing the ram I got with the 2500K so if my board doesn't support it, it'll be kinda odd

    Maybe...You won't know until you try. You might check the G skill website and see if they tested that memory in that motherboard..
