Yep!

It says this at the top of the page too

"Memory modules listed below are for reference only. Due to massive memory models on the market, we can only verify some of them"

There is absolutely no reason it shouldn't work. I find the memory support lists are frequently outdated. Manufacturers just can't keep up with all the new RAM kits released to market. However, you can get much better RAM for your money, like this.

yea, i know about the samsung memory...i really like samsung..i plan on getting their SSD's for my build....shame the memory doesnt have any heatsinks

Just buy some aftermarket heatsinks and stick them on. Heatsinks on memory are a gimmick anyway. Unless you're doing extreme RAM overclocking, heatsinks are pretty much just for aesthetics.

I guess I don't understand what you're trying to say. I posted a link to a UK vendor that sells it. It's a U.S. product that is imported to the UK.

well anyways....aesthetics is important to me. If i was building a performance car from the ground up, then i would want it to look good.
and i would be willing to spend more cash on something that only added visual appeal without more functionality.

I can understand that. I just wanted to make sure you knew you were paying more for less performance. thumb.gif
