Motherboard + Memory Compatibility Question

So I bought some G. Skill DDR3 1333 RAM and an Asrock B75-DGS Motherboard from Newegg-
The ram said on Newegg that it is compatible with Intel LGA 1155 platforms so I assumed that I would be okay.
I went into a panic today though, because the RAM is not listed as supported/tested by my motherboard manufacturer. Should I just return the RAM and get a new set? Or should I try the ram in the motherboard to see if it works? Can it possibly work?

Basically my question is: Can RAM not specifically listed as supported on a Motherboard compatibility list still be compatible with your motherboard?

  1. Yes they can be compatible generally not all ram cards compatible are listed. You just need to take care of the DDR2/3 and the operating frequencies.
