This is a discussion on Need 16gb of DDr4 within the RAM and Power Supply Support forums, part of the Tech Support Forum category. Hi guys.
I got a Asus z-170A mobo with a i5 6600k overclocked to 4500 mhz.
Soon I will upgrade
Crucial have their own site and also have a tool to use for ram that should be suitable and they usually give a guarantee so in the event there was a issue they will rectify it or refund so if you are determined to go against the QVL you at least have some options. I still advise going with the QVL.
Eliminate all other factors, and the one which remains must be the truth.
