    Although, I looked at the QVL on the board and my specific memory, down to the model number is on there. So... I should be ok haha.
    Gskill TridentZ 3200mhz (White/ silver) 2x8GB Cas latency of 16
    Yep should be good is right, I even heard of guys having memory problems with memory that was on the list. The reviews at Newegg are very useful sometimes.

    That I have heard as well! QVL memory not POSTing... Wish a company would just come out with a simple no BS quality motherboard that's tested for ultimate compatibility, hardware quality and stability. Without the extra useless stuff...
    So difficult choosing a motherboard nowadays

    People fail to understand that when they buy those hi speed DDR4 kits they are actually overclocking their memory. So you shouldn't expect those kits to be plug-n-play with all CPUs.

    Maybe so if you set high speed memory to XMP profile but even the fast memory should be able to boot when set below rated speeds.

    Well I had nothing but good luck with my previous ASUS mobo. That's why I went with another one. Had a Z77 sabertooth i7-2600k running at 4950 I think it was for years. Board died recently so got me a IX Hero. It was what I needed and with my current config runs flawless.

    ASUS Z270 IX Hero
    i7-7700K
    Corsair H100
    Corsair Vengeance LED 16GB 3200MHz
    STRIX GTX1080 A8G
    Corsair HX850W
    Win7x64 SP2

    I haven't even tried to overclock much. The gtx1080 kicks butt on the games
