Greetings everyone,

I'm about to order one HyperX Fury 16GB (2x8) 2400 CL15-15-15 kit and wanted to make sure it's 100% compatible with the motherboard.
After checking the Memory Support List, I realised that only the Dual-rank module (HX424C15FBK2/16) is mentioned.
The store however, offers its single-rank counterpart (HX424C15FB2K2/16) cheaper. The question is, will it work?
I know they're essentially the same, but I'd feel much safer if someone could confirm (ideally, has personally tested the said modules).

Compatibility aside, what do you gain/lose by using Single-rank RAM?

Click on the below link, then click on the white bar in the middle right titled "Find the right memory" for Kingston compatibility.

Check this out: http://forum.asrock.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=3622&title=extreme6-z170-ripjaws-v-3000-compatibility 

I had that issue but the memory worked even though it is not on the officially supported list either
