    It will work with it and you can set the ram speed manually or with XMP. From the board manual
    "Load XMP Setting
    Use this to load XMP setting. Con guration options: [Auto], [Pro le 1] and
    [Pro le 2]. The default value is [Auto].
    DRAM Frequency
    If [Auto] is selected, the motherboard will detect the memory module(s)
    inserted and assigns appropriate frequency automatically."
