Resolved Question

Computer memory compatibility with my motherboard

by apprenticing101 / January 31, 2014 11:04 PM PST

Motherboard= Asus GRYPHON Z87
Memory= Corsair Vengeance Pro Series 2x4GB 1866MHZ Part# CMY8GX3M2A1866C9 9-10-9-27 1.50V version 3.24

The motherboard user guide called for version 5.12 or 8.16 also has an XMP Identifier. My question is, will my memory still work with this motherboard and why can't I find the version of memory while shopping? All I can find is the part number. Any help in this endeavor would be greatly appreciated.

1. Do not mix memory makes in a PC. Unless you had oodles of time and an engineering background.
2. Use Crucial.com
3. Adding memory? Get more of the same make/model sticks if the motherboard supports the selection.
