    Default ASROCK 990FX EXTREME3 with Kingston HyperX Beast 8GB

    I wonder does this mbo support this memory out of the box or will it at least let me post to update bios. On supported memory this one is not listed but this one is Kingston HyperX 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Desktop Memory HyperX Plug n Play Model KHX16C9P1K2/16 - Newegg.com to me they look the same except different heat sink and voltage....

    The Kingston memory search configurator provides a list of their memory kits that are compatible with your motherboard:
    Kingston Technology Company - Kingston Memory Search - Search Results for: ASRock 990FX Extreme3 Motherboard

    PDF data sheet specs: http://www.kingston.com/datasheets/KHX16C9P1K2_16.pdf

    If you buy a memory kit that isn't on ASRock's memory list and isn't on the memory manufacturer's compatibility list, there is a very good chance that the memory might not work well with your motherboard.

    I haven't checked the ASRock memory QVL list for the model name of the Kingston memory.
    The fact that both memory kits have different default voltages at the same speed tells me that each memory kit uses different chips, even if the default memory timings are identical.
