Hi,
because of not finding adequate info, maybe here's someone confident about it (or not).
 
These memory:

and that board:

Thanks for your interest!

Edit: It looks like the Predator will work with my system; from what I read about it on hyperx. If it will not, I got some alternative too that has a 100% compatibility. Let's see...

    I bought a pair Ballistix Elite (2x8GB @ 1866MHz), because they work 100% with the i7 and the Z87-Classy. The Elite run with 1,5v, the Predators with 1,65v. I,m not sure if powering up the imc with 1,65v 24/7 isn't too much for the system. Besides, I read a few articles about memorys and after a few diagrams I saw, in many cases,  that just more MHz does not work faster than tighter programmed, less MHz.

    Now to my "Please advice". I'm not sure if I'm missing something here. Especially with my board, that is from ground up build for oc. There are a lot of discussions about the 1,65v on the imc of the 4770K (which is cooled by a Noctua and stays - no matter what application I use - under 60 degrees).
     
    I just like to know, if there is a real benefit of using ram with a higher bandwidth, in my case 1866 - 2400MHz, or is it just to own the numbers? I only upgrade when it is necessary and with the memory I thought I will get a smoother picture from Mankind Divided (for one) but I see no great improvement in that so far. Before the Elite I had 2x4GB @ 1866MHz Dominator Platinum at the Z87. - Completly full with Win and Mankind.
     
    Predator: CL11-13-14-35 @2400MHz, 1,65v (i9 & X79)
    Elite:        CL09-09-09-27 @1866MHz, 1,50v (i7 & Z87)
     
    Well, 11 / 2400 = 0,0045 & 09 / 1866 = 0,0048. 0,0003 seconds difference...
     
    Edit: I'm talking to myself.
