Corsair cmx8gx3m2a1600c9 + ASRock z87 Extreme4

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I can't see these exact ones on the ASRock z87 Extreme4's memory supported list on their official website but RAM tends to work on motherboards even if they're not specifically listed anyway. The RAM sticks are these:

I'm building a new rig (going from AMD to Intel) with a 4770k on it and wanted to save (just temporarily for now) some money on not having to buy new RAM. Just wanted to post here and see what everyone else thought of these RAM sticks in terms of compatibility .

Technically, there is no reason why your current kit shouldn't work on a Z87 motherboard.

Thanks, that gives me more confidence. Appreciate it.

Any more comments from others would be good too.
