Good afternoon folks, I have a small doubt about RAM memory. I am planning to upgrade my PC by the end of this month, so I'd bemoving from a 4770K (never overclocked) to an 8700K which I plan to overclock using a Corsair H100i v2. The mobo would be most likely an ASUS Maximus X Hero (WiFi). My real doubt comes to the RAM memory: I was thinking about the Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) 3200MHz, CL15 (CMK16GX4M2B3200C15), but its description reads "Designed for high-performance overclocking on Intel 100 Series motherboards", while the 8th-Gen Maximus X Hero belongs to the 300 Series. Would I possibly have compatibility issues or is that information merely advisory? Lastly, would these memory sticks do the trick? I do want a decent set (which I think this one is), but don't expect to purchase a top of the line one as it'd exceed my budget. I chose Corsair and this model in particular because it's one of the very few that are available at physical stores in my country. I don't really want to import them as it'd take longer and in case of a return it'd become a pain in the neck. Do you guys think this set is okay for my setup? I want to do a "moderate" overclock and go as far as my cooling and the processor itself allow, as I don't want to fry a brand-new 8700K. Thanks in advance!
