I'd recommend a RAM upgrade to go with the CPU and board. These are tested for the Z87-A.
Sniper - F3-2133C10D-16GSR - G.SKILL DDR3 Memory
You will have much better performance. I have 3 sets of Sniper and it works very well.

As long as I can use the RAM I have now when the motherboard arrives, that's all I'm concerned about cause I'll only need to use it for 2 -4 weeks tops. I'll be sure and check out your suggested link. Thanks!

Providing that the motherboard has the correct sockets for the type of RAM that you are intending to use (and in the case of the newer boards this will be DDR3), then the memory should work, providing that you are not exceeding the maximum capacity for the board. Given the many RAM modules available, even from just one manufacturer, it is really just a case of the motherboard manufacturer not having the time/resources to test every single module available. In most cases, this shouldn't cause any problems.

As a postscript, I purchased some G.Skill Ram that was "Z77" compatible (2x4GB) and the supplier was adamant it should be fine yet the 2nd stick was not recognized. Luckily the supplier was local and convinced himself it wasn't compatible with the ASRock Z77M and replaced the Ram.
My recommendation: If buying mail order buy Ram tested for your motherboard.

I just had a set of two stick and one proved bad, it happens. GSkill does its own exhaustive testing and provides a list of boards it is guaranteed to work with.

I've downloaded the manual for the motherboard and it has a large list of compatible RAM and I think, I may have found some decent RAM any thoughts? Thanks! G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-8GBXM - Newegg.com
