    Default Asrock z170 Extreme 6 and Ram compatibility

    Hello, I make my new build with 6700K, gtx1070 and I want the Asrock z170 extreme 6 (I hesitated with Gigabyte z170x Ultra gaming but I don't like LEDs on MB even if I can disable them and audio is apparently better on Asrock)

    I read a lot about "not very good" ram compatibility with the z170 motherboards in general. And now for the Asrock I hesitate on 2 RAMs, I can only buy one of these two and I'm afraid they're not fully compatibles with the Asrock. I checked QVL and they are not on the list but where I live all ram I can buy aren't on the QVL.. I know the QVL is maybe outdated and not complete and this is why I make this subjet, if you can help me and tell me if you think they're compatible or not with my motherboard.

    Here the QVL Asrock ASRock > Z170 Extreme6

    The first ram, I want to buy these for now :
    "F4-2800C15D-16GVRB" G.skill ripjaws 2800Mhz CAS 15 2x8gb
    You can see on their QVL they're compatible with almost all Z170 motherboards but nothing about any Asrock z170, but why is that they will not be compatible ? Maybe they are but not tested ?

    The other ram is :
    "CMK16GX4M2A2400C14" Corsair Vengeance LPX 2400Mhz CAS 14 2x8gb Vengeance(R) LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 2400MHz C14 Memory Kit - Black (CMK16GX4M2A2400C14)
    Here again, not on the QVL but they're almost the same as other one on the QVL.

    So do you think I can buy the G.skill without problem ? If not, can I buy the Corsair ? Thanks for your time.
