Memory HCL quick question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I am building a new rig and have a simple memory question. I am getting an Asus Z68-v Pro board. Looking at the HCL for 2600 memory on Asus's website, they do not list the G.Skill kit I am looking at (F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM). Is it safer to just go with an option from this list (Corsair), or does it really matter? On G.skils website, they list that memory kit as being fine with the Z68-v-pro, although I tend to trust the mobo company more. Any thoughts around this? The main reason behind this is that Gskill is cheaper and I have had great luck with it in the past. I will be using TPM to overclock...

So... I guess this is a noob question huh hah. Ok, so I see others using gskill in a build on this mobo with a config not on the HCL, so I may take a chance with these sticks to see if it works.
