    Default RAM Compatability question

    Hello, this is my first time posting on this particular forum, but I am in the market for a new motherboard after receiving 2 ASUS P8-PRO boards with bent pins and was thinking of getting an ASRock board.

    I have returned my 2nd ASUS board for a refun and am planning on purchasing a new MOBO, but I am not sure if my current ram is compatable. I know you might say (Well, go to the compatability site) which I did, but did not see my particular ram on the list.

    I talked with some friends and they that my RAM should work in an ASRock mobo, but I want to make sure before I order the MOBO.

    Here is the RAM I have...

    <DD>CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9

    I have noticed that people who have purchased ASRock MOBOs have mentioned their computer build, and in some of those builds, they say they have 16gb of corsair vengeance RAM, but they don't specify anything other than that.

    Here is everything I am working with, minus the bolded MOBO that I have RMA'd x2 now because of bent pins when I received it. (i think the 2nd one was a refurb-ed board too because the metal on it was varnished)

    1 x CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9

    1 x Western Digital Caviar Green WD20EARS 2TB SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
    1 x COOLER MASTER HAF X RC-942-KKN1 Black Steel/ Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
    1 x ASUS P8Z68-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS ---THE BOARD I RMA'd 2x for Bent Pins.

    So if someone could give me some feedback, that would be great!
