On the Sabertooth memory QVL it says i can use 4x8gb of GSkill 1866 9-10-9-28, my issue is i bought 1866 10-11-10-30 (oops)

Does anyone know if i can still run all 32gb at this higher timing? I am running a AMD FX4300 3.8 4 core processor

The memory should be fine as it will only work at the max that the CPU/memory controller will allow it, if the Ram was not the same 1.5V it`s use would not be recommended, you will note btw that an 8GB stick of 1866 10-11-10-30 Team Ram has been tested and approved.

 

As an asides, the QVL is a useful guide and it is advisable to only purchase Ram and a CPU that has been tested and approved by the MB manufacturer when the MB is a new release or revision number, other than that a good quality brand of same spec Ram should not cause any issue.

 

Once the Ram is fitted benchmark it with CPU-Z and let us know how you get on, CPU-Z here

 

NB: MB manufacturers do advise that other hardware will be compatible but that there are too many available for them all to be tested.
