    Is my motherboard compatible with this RAM?

    I have this motherboard in my current self build: GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1150 - GA-Z97M-DS3H (rev. 1.0)

    I'm trying to figure out if it is compatible with this RAM: Buy the PNY XLR8 Performance Edition 16GB Desktop Memory M at

    The motherboard's spec page says "1866 OC" but this is actual 1866 ram.
