Crosshair VI Hero: Need a RAM Compatibility List please!

rsquires
Level 9
Hello! Is there a Memory Compatibility List out for the X370 Crosshair VI Hero as yet? If not, does this RAM look like an appropriate choice:
http://gskill.com/en/product/f4-3200c14d-16gtzsk
It's 14-14-14-34-2N 1.35v 2x8GB

Or should I aim for an even higher speed RAM?

I'm also wondering if using a NVME M.2 SSD (Samsung 950pro) will disable any of the PCI-E slots on this motherboard? Thanks!

You plan AMD build? 🙂
There is a lot of question for next AMD platform, soon everything will be clear.
AMD will probably have some bundles for 1000$ to people buy whole platform.
Example ROG Mobo Crosshair, 1800X and RAM. Everything for price of i7-6900K and better performance.
Because 99% of enthusiasts build platform 1000$ or less.

Powerfull Ryzen will positively influence and on AMD GPU section.
Even if performance are lower than NVIDIA customers will pay less to build whole AMD platform.
But maybe AMD have surprise and for NVIDIA. Customers wait competitive CPU with i7-7700K but AMD beat i7-6900K, maybe is TITAN Pascal in danger as well.
There is a lot of gamers who can't wait situation to say goodbay to NVIDIA, they cripple 1200$ worth chips, that's insane...
That's humiliation of buyers who pay 1200$ to know that chip is not 100% full completely operational.
When I heard specification and price I never enter after that in some TITAN topic or click on some news about him.
Crippled and expensive without special capability, it's less interesting than any TITAN before.

same

pre ordered this MB, 1800x and new EK waterblock to replace my R4E & 3930k just need QVL to order memory

or if this will work

Waiting for my 1700x and crosshair vi hero. As far as i can tell from what ive seen online. The vihero is the only mb that can clock up to 3200mhz while most others are having issues forcing users to downclock. The kits handed out to reviewers have the aorus mb with 3000mhz ddr4 corsair vengence lpx ram. Hoping to get a list before ryzen launch to ensure system stability

I took a chance and ordered the G.Skill Trident Z RGB 32GB (4x8) 3600 kit from newegg. I figured eventually I will get them running at 3200 or 3400 and just tighten up the timings. In the meantime run them at whatever speed I can get them to go out of the box.
MOBO - Crosshair V Formula
CPU - AMD FX-8350 @ 4.7GHz
COOLER - Phanteks ph-tc14pe
RAM - 16GB Kingston Hyper X Beast @ 2133MHz
GPU - EVGA GTX 750 Ti
HDD - 500GB Samsung 840 EVO SSD
PSU - Corsair RM650
CASE - Corsair 300R
OS - Windows 8.1 Pro w/ Media Center 64bit

Website still not showing any QVL......the MB is being released tomorrow!!!!.

Come on Asus, SORT IT OUT! :mad:

Can anyone offer any advice on what modules would be good as I can't see any real chat about it.

I will be looking foe 2 x 8GB 3000 or 3200 sticks.

Thanks for any thoughts.
