I got all of these parts for Christmas and was planning on building it today. I got out all of my parts and realized that the RAM has 2 symbols that are intel core i7 and intel core processors. I was wondering if this ram will still work with this AMD build. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

*Update... The PC part picker sees no compatibility issues.

That doesn't say much really.

As PCPP Ram compatibility goes as far as the type of the modules in question concerns and not the speed of these. :)

I will show you an example.

We will change your build to the following...

We changed the ram with a Ram kit that's rated at 4333MHz!

PCPP says that everything is paletti!

Now i ensure you, this particular Ram will not even run at 3200MHz on that board, and the chances are bad that it will run on a Intel build at that speed as well.

Because even on a Intel build the following applies.

The stability and compatibility of memory modules with XMP profiles that operate beyond the JEDEC memory standard are not guaranteed. The stability and compatibility of these memory modules depend on the CPU’s capabilities and other installed devices.

So as you can see, it's totally useless to rely on PCPP compatibility check as Ram speeds concerns.

On that matter, you should rather consult the QVL list of the board or (and) the ram kit in question.


And as your build concerns, i would personally do it that way...
