Can I run CMK32GX5M2X6600C32 @6600MHZ with Z690-F + 12900K

Hello,

I have a Z690-F running 12900K. I want to upgrade my RAMS from 4800MHZ dual kit to the maximum supported by this mainboard officially.
Z690-F specs says it support 6400Mhz DDR5 rams at max but I noticed that QVL page have some 6600 MHz RAMS for 12900K:


https://rog.asus.com/motherboards/rog-strix/rog-strix-z690-f-gaming-wifi-model/helpdesk_qvl_memory/

If I buy Corsair VENGEANCE 32GB (2x16GB) DDR5 DRAM 6600MHz C32 Memory Kit CMK32GX5M2X6600C32 which is listed in the qvl page, will it work at 6600Mhz C32 timings if I set BIOS setting as XMP1/XMP2 ? Will be that simple? I'm trying to understand what Asus guarantee by listing a RAM product code in its QVL page.

Thanks in advance!

Anyone having experience on Gskill 6600's attached to Z690-F ? These are also in the Z690-F QVL list

GSkill F5-6600J3440G16GX2-TZ5RK
GSkill F5-6600J3440G16GX2-TZ5RS

There are normally three QVL lists for memory worth looking at, one is the motherboard, the other two is what Intel say and what Memory manufacture say.
While I run AMD platforms, tend to prefer the rule 2 out 3 isn't bad for QVL lists and like these odds.

You may want to submit an support ticket to Corsair to enquire them. It fastest this way.
