    I don't see how this set work not work. I have both a 3200 and 3600mhz set of GSkill Trident 32gb memory and both sets work just fine with both the X Hero and the X Apex. It should not be a problem.

    Thank you for your response. I dont know if it will or not, I was just asking because I didnt want to buy the wrong ram. I read the Rog Maximus Formula X Qualified Vendor Listing all rams that work with the board and I could not find the ram i wanted to buy.

    How ever since on my local retail there is only a 3000 mhz version c16q would it be better to wait until they stock with 3200 or more ? will there be any diff from 3000 mhz to lets say 3200 or 3600 ?

    Thank you Mate

    In memory benchmarks you would see a difference but probably not in everyday use. I'm sure you wouldn't notice any loss of gaming performance either. You could even run those 3000mhz sticks at 3200mhz I'm sure. I've run GSkill Trident 3200mhz sticks at 3600mhz without issue. I'd say use the memory and maybe upgrade later on when DDR4 prices become more affordable again.

    I personally would go by G skill's list. Unlike Ryzen, Intel platform has really good compatibility with various RAM kits.

    While you're looking at Trident Z kits, I would suggest getting the CL14 kits. Those are the superior kits with Samsung B-die ICs.

    Generally if g.skill says it will work, it will. Asus can't test every stick of RAM made on every board.
    BTW, I have 16x2 GB TridentZ RGB on my Maximus X code, and it works great. My exact model of stick was't on the Asus QVL list.

    I would but on my local retail there is only the CL16q version . And I have been asking people around for days if the G.SKILL Trident Z RGB F4-3000C16Q-32GTZR will work with Formula X. So far i got very mixed opinions :/

    well i will go for the G.SKILL Trident Z RGB F4-3000C16Q-32GTZR than. I really hope it will work since in my country it cost around 450$ and they dont have any return policy. :/
