I'm possibly planning on making the upgrade from my current X99 Classified to a Z690 Classifed + Raptor's 13900K and if possible with my current Corsair 4x8 32GB DDR4 3200Mhz RAM.  Will this ram work with the Z690 Classified?  I've looked everywhere so far and it only states DDR5 is compatible with this board while Raptor Lake and DDR4 will be compatible on the Z690 platform I keep reading.  Is this not compatible with EVGA Z690 boards only or it's not listed but they still are? 
Thanks

    I can confirm this would be DDR5 only on this board.

    Thank you for the response.  
     
    I should have worded it differently but is there a chance it can go to DDR4 once the Z690 BIOS update gets released for compatibility with the Raptor Lake or it's still sticking with DDR5 regardless?

    No.  DDR4 & DDR5 are physically keyed differently, so the slots are different.
