Questions about the QvL list supported RAM and SSDs

In The QvL List to my Maximus X Formula (and that is similar to X Hero Boards)


  • there are only 4*16 GB RAM Kits but no 2*16 GB Kits at all? Why?



  • there are only Samsung 960 evo und pro M.2 SSDs with max. 512 GB but no one with 1 TB. Why?

Either they were not compatible or simply not tested. QVL list is simply what they have confirmed to work.
Need only post the question once.

Also pay attention that Asus QVL for memory is very tricky.
Meaning a lot of memory kits are tested only at JEDEC specs, not with XMP enabled. Which is a bit lame in my opinion.

You could just browse the QVL for your desired memory KIT, see that it is listed and say: Great. It will work.
And buy the KIT.
Only to discover that most likely it will not work stable at XMP.
And if it will, hurry and buy a lottery ticket because you are lucky 🙂

How can i browse the QVL for my desired memory KIT ?

seriously??
if this is true, then the qvl in not worth the name...

It is tested at the frequency shown in the QVL. Pay attention to the disclaimers, though. Anything that can be classified as an overclock isn't guaranteed to work because variance comes into play.

but then again: what's a qvl worth if it says: we tested it and it may work, but don't blame us if it doesn't ...?
it's nothing else then just another lottery.
a qvl i can't rely on - because basicaly everything beyond stock spec is overcloking - is really not worth a dime!

sorry if this sounds too harsh; just try to see it from the customers point of view. if you're looking for components which definetely work as they're marketed/specified, the qvl would be the first thing to check...
you don't need a qvl to have stock specifications guaranteed!

Overclocking is a lottery. That's why it's called overclocking. The QVL merely shows it may work. Not that it 100% will.

Each motherboard has a QVL.
X HERO for example: http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1151/ROG_MAXIMUS_X_FORMULA/MEMORY_QVL_0108.pdf

Or the question was referring to the wording of the phrase? 🙂
