Hi guys, I'm wonder if the ram that comes with the ASUS P8Z77-V LE LGA 1155 Intel Z77 Motherboard will work with my current GSkill Ram.
The ram I have (Gskill) is timed at 9-9-9-24-2n but the ram that comes with the motherboard is timed at 9-9-9-24. Is there a difference and can I mix these two types of ram together? I heard if they are clocked at the same speed and have the same timings it will work but I need your help.

The Motherboard I plan on getting: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
The Ram that comes with the Motherboard bundle: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
The Ram I currently have :http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also, if you have any suggestions about the Motherboard please give me some feed back on the board. Please tell me if its a problem or if its a bad mobo.

Thanks.

It may work fine, but there's no guarantee when mixing ram brands. The 2n refers to the command rate, which has to run at that setting when all four ram slots are used.

Without getting granular, there is a good chance that the RAM with the lowest times will be the default. Worst case scenario, your system will not run with all 4 DIMMS installed.

I once ran two different types of RAM from OCZ, a pair of GOLD Series and a pair of Platinum Series. In the end, the system defaulted to the slowest of the set.
