Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3 Memory Question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Its finally time for me to build a new machine and i'm going to get the Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3 and an i7-2600k. I multibox games so I need a lot of memory and I was looking at getting 2 sets of G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 for a total of 16gb of memory. This memory isn't listed on their compatibility list but it should work. Does anyone know if I'm going to have any problems using this memory with the Gigabyte board?

It will work fine but you'd have to manually set speed and voltage in BIOS. That's normal though.

Thank you for confirming this for me. I'm comfortable setting timings and voltages in the bios so that is not a problem. Time to pull the trigger. biggrin.gif
