    Lightbulb Will ram work proporly? its not in the aproved "memory support list"

    Hi i have just orderd a buch of hardware to build a new gaming computer.

    I just noticed that the ram i orderd is not in the supported ram list. This ram is one of the most common on the market and i wounder will it work? anyone who have this mobo with these rams who can confirm it will work?

    Here is the ram i will use: Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 8GB DDR3 PC3-12800 1600MHz (2x4GB)

    (CML8GX3M2A1600C9)

    I will not OC the computer, just run it as it is.

    Parts that i have orderd.
    Antec Kuhler H2O 620
    Antec P280
    ASRock Z77 Extreme4
    Corsair PowerSupply (PSU) GS 600W Gaming Series 80 Plus
    Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 8GB DDR3 PC3-12800 1600MHz (CML8GX3M2A1600C9) (2x4GB)
    Intel Core i5-3570K - 4 trådar / 3,4GHz (3,8GHz Turbo) / 6MB / Socket 1155 (Boxed) (77w)
    Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Engelsk (64-bit) (OEM) (DVD)
    Samsung Intern SSD 128GB 830 SATA6G Basic Kit (SSD) (MZ-7PC128B/WW )

    Seagate Intern Hårddisk Barracuda 2TB (64MB / 7200RPM) (ST2000DM001)

    I know this is a noob question, but if i am lucky someone have done the stupid thing of ordring first and then lookup if it will work

    Welcome to the forum.
    A web search using: CML8GX3M2A1600C9 z77 extreme4 should help answer your question.
    Keep in mind that motherboard manufacturers can only test a small sample of all the current memory kits with each motherboard.
    I've seen several cases where some memory kits had issues with overclocking with some brands or models of motherboards.
    You probably won't have issues with using a 2x4GB kit, but using 8GB memory modules might be a problem.
    The odds are in your favor when you buy current memory kits, and older memory kits might have some "issues".
    Let us know how your memory works out.

    Hey, I don't think I can help too much but I can tell you one thing. I did the same thing...I have the same motherboard as you and I didn't look at the supported memory page before I bought my G.SKILL Sniper Series SDRAM DDR3 2133. It works perfectly well with my mobo, but it just doesn't run at 2133, only at 1600. I would just like to know if there is some way of me boosting the speed up to 2133, but I assume there isn't.

    try emailing asrock and ask for them to test,send you a bios to support 2133mhz with the gskill,most likely its bios thats holding you back,makesure you use latest available bios if you arnt already

    it should tell you what version bios you have somewhere in the bios pages/info screen itself,at start up,and for the latest version look on asrock wensite and type in your motherboard model and look for newest bios release

    Thanks all for your replys, i will post here when the build is finished. Most likely as wazza300 wrote it will work just fine. This is the first time i use a ASRock mobo so it will be intresting. Normaly i go the safe way and use asus witch im used too.

    Greetings all.

    in addition to above post my 2 cents
    Normally the MB will detect SPD and set your RAM to 1333. You have to set the RAM to 1600 and OC the CPU a bit. I suppose your memory is rated at 1.50 v stock.You have to bump up the RAM voltage a bit if it fails to work at 1.5 V,1600 Mhz.
