    Default asrock z77 extreme9 memory compatibility

    Hello everybody,

    I wanted to buy the asrock z77 extreme9 motherboard and my question is about memory compatibility.
    I saw in newegg that they have combo deals for this board with memory.

    Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

    Do you think I can rely on these deals that the memory is compatible with the motherboard?
    I tried to compare the memory model code with the ones that are supported according to the asrock site - ASRock > Products > Z77 Extreme9

    The ONLY match I got was for corsair dominator CMT32GX3M4X1866C9 (which is really expensive)

    I also looked in gskill site for supported memories (G.SKILL-SEARCH BY MANUFACTURER MODEL NAME ) and found a few that match the combo deals in newegg (F3-12800CL10Q-32GBZL, F3-1866C10Q-32GXL, F3-1866C10Q-32GAB) but these codes donít appear in the asrock list.
    So, can I rely on the gskill site even though it doesnít appear in asrock memory supported list?
    I also looked in corsair site but they donít even have the z77 extreme9 listedÖ

    Thanks for your help
    :)

    If the G.Skill site shows its compatible with your motherboard you should be fine.

    If the ASRock site says that a memory model is compatible, it is.

    If it's not on one list or the other, then you are taking a risk.

    I know on the x79 platform (with 8 memory slots) some kits only work at the advertised speed if you use 4 sticks, and have to be lowered for stability if you use 8 sticks. I'm not sure how that would play out on your platform.

    Personally I think you should just go with the best one that is listed for your motherboard on either site. I wouldn't buy an unlisted one and risk having compatibility issues, unless you have a backup pair of memory sticks to use in case you need to return the new ones.

    Thanks for your answer!
    I feel more comfortable now to go ahead and buy one of the kits that is supported according to the G. Skill site.

    Hi all,

    Just a small update, eventually I went with G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL10Q-32GBZL.
    I enabled XMP profile in the bios and it runs 1600 with no special issues so far.
    Thank you all for helping!
    :)
