How to tell what types of RAM a motherboard is compatible with?

  1. If a mother board says it's compatible with DDR3 ram does it mean any type? For example PC3-10666 and PC3-12800?

    I'm confused because this motherboard is compatible with DDR3 but this RAM doesn't list the motherboard model with compatible types?

    If you go directly to (in this example) to Gigabytes support website for the motherboards model, you will see complete memory specs. If you follow the specs you won't have any problems or confusion
