    Exclamation Maximus VIII Extreme and Trident Z 3200Mhz 8GB

    Hey all,
    I noticed something bad happen on Maximus VIII Extreme with G.Skill Trident Z 3200Mhz 8GB on Newegg Here is the link

    I plan to build Maximus VIII Extreme and Trident Z 3200Mhz 8GB too..
    Will that DOA happen to me too??
    How about the Maximus VIII Hero ?? I'll choose maximus hero if there is no problem with this RAM

    Thanks
    Any comment will be appreciated..

    The Maximus VIII Extreme will have no problem running 3200MHz RAM given that your CPU's IMC is capable of supporting that frequency. I have the Maximus VIII Extreme and all I can say is that it's an awesome motherboard. If money is no option, it's highly recommended.

    as stated above, I wouldn't worry to much that kit will run fine on both the Extreme and Hero board, it is a little pricey but if your buying an Extreme board then a few bucks extra on memory shouldn't be an issue for you, once you set XMP in the bios just verify it set the dram voltage correctly

    You won't be disappointed. The M8E is an excellent motherboard with lots of overclocking features.
