Ares compatability

I'm building a new pc and after doing my research and getting mixed answers I was wondering if someone could answer my question. Will the G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C11Q-16GAO will work at 2133 speed in the ASRock X79 extreme9 motherboard. On the ASRock support site the ares are not listed and the extreme9 motherboard is also not listed on G.SKILL Ares support page as well. Any help is appreciated.

    They do not test all ram that is on the market (nobody has the resources to do that) although it is not tested it is over 99% chance that it works since the specs match.
  2. Thanks for the quick response. I kinda figured they would work but I've seen a few posts around saying they don't get the top speed and that kind of worried me.
  3. The top speed is overclocking settings and takes a lot of tweaks.
