How to select memory for MOBO not on QVL

December 3, 2018 at 02:48:46
Specs: Windows 10
Will any DDR4 2133 work in my MOBO and run at 2133 native or do I have to use the QVL? The board and processor support DDR4 2133.

What make, version is the motherboard? Is the computer a self-build or a brand name?; and if the latter then what make/model?

Crucial have a very safe to use scanner utility which will discover what'a already installed; and what is compatible with their range of RAM. I suggest you investigate via Crucial. I have no involvement with them but have used their RAM and SSD many times and very happy to recommend them.

The specs for that board state you can use DDR4 2400 also. One thing I recommend is to use RAM that is built to run at JEDEC standard voltage, which for DDR4 is 1.2V.

The QVL list just means the EXACT RAM modules listed there have been tested and will run at the advertised speed and settings.

I am running a Gigabyte AB350-Gaming Board and am running a matched pair of DDR4 2400 8GB.

For best performance buy Dual Channel kits. For most users 2x4GB or 2x8GB is sufficient.
