Since I am totally newbie in building pc, can some1 tell me if this motherboard MSI Z370-A PRO (with i5 8400) is going to run those rams Corsair 8GB 3000MHz Vengeance LPX Black CL16 (2x4GB), since on the official msi site it's only showing cl15 for 2x4gb. Thanks in advance.
Thank you very much for taking the time to reach the Intel® Communities Team.
I understand you would like to have a recommendation of RAM for the system you are building. I will be more than glad to assist you further.
As per the https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/Z370-A-PRO# support-mem-5 Memory Compatibility chart of the MSI* Z370-A PRO, this RAM should work properly on the system (http://www.corsair.com/en-us/vengeance-lpx-16gb-2x8gb-ddr4-dram-3000mhz-c15-memory-kit-black-cmk16gx... CMK16GX4M2B3000C15) nonetheless, you should take into consideration that the https://ark.intel.com/products/126685/Intel-Core-i5-8600K-Processor-9M-Cache-up-to-4_30-GHz?q=i5-860... Intel® Core™ i5-8400 (Memory Specification section) will support up to 64GB of RAM at 2666MHz so it would be better to get a RAM that supports the frequency of the processor in order to avoid any type of damage for the system.
I hope this helps.
