Will Crucial Ballistix Elite 1866 work on a ASUS M5A97 2.0 board?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, read the fourms a lot here, but never actually posted so this is my 1st one. I just built a system and the 2 components in question are:

Asus M5A97 R2.0 Mobo
Crucial Ballistix 16gb (8x2) 1866 Ram

I knew going in this wasn't on the supported ram docs but I wanted to try it anyways.

Can someone either confirm or deny this setup?

Thanks!

Certainly will. As long as it's DDR3, there shouldn't be any issues.

The supported RAM documents are usually pretty quickly outdated as new sets become available all the time.
