All mobos will work with a single stick of RAM most are engineered to benefit from pairs, not require them

Nope. You've got the wrong form factor (1150 vs this 1151) and the 4790K needs DDR3 ram.

But me too though, I've got an i5-6600k and even though its LGA1151 - which is what this is - what I've read tells me only the 8th and 9th gen chips work. I'm 6th gen and obsolete.
My i4790k has prevented me from upgrading my MoBo and RAM. I may just fork over a few hundreds for 1151 socket processor and ddr4

Going to buy and build my first gaming computer. Is this a good start? I'm only looking to run at 1080p and 60fps and want to use an AMD chip.
If you want to use an AMD chip you'll need an AM4 socket motherboard, not this one.

I'm considering it, but I saw that the bundled RAM is not listed in the ASRock site (https://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z...sp#Memory) as a supported one.
Does anyone know how strict these compatibility lists are?

Check out the i5-9400F for $170 also on Newegg for a good CPU deal. It does need a video card though.

Should work fine. Intel boards are not as picky. I run the ASRock Z390 Extreme4 fine with ADATA DDR4 3000.

RAM compatibility hasn't been an issue for a while. It will almost certainly work.

A bigger issue would be CPU compatibility out of the box.

I have a asrock z370 board. I'm not in love the z370 and z390 chipset. They support only the gen 8 and gen 9 cpus, but I think the gen 8 is a better bang for the buck (hence the prices of gen 8 series cpus are still very expensive). If you're going to do a gen 8 cpu, you might as well get the cheaper and more affordable z2X0 series boards

With the z3X0's limited life span on available intel chipset, I think its better to wait for one more if you are on any of the i47XX chipset. However, this is a pretty good deal at the price, so maybe flip a coin?

Thanks. Not an issue for me as I'll likely go for an I5-9600K...

worth upgrade from my 4790K w/ 32GB RAM or not?
That's what I'm still on. I've considered every generation so far. Only Intel chip I'd upgrade to today is the i9-9900k. Threadripper is kinda tempting in raw power but disappointing in pure speed. Ryzen 2000 chips are a tad too slow but I think I'm going to pull the trigger on Ryzen 3000 if I can get a 12 core ~5GHz chip (assuming those not-very-credible leaks end up being true), largely in part because they have speculative execution exploit mitigation built into the architecture.

My 4790k @ 4.7GHz is just hard to beat once you consider the cost. That was a great time to have built a new PC!

No, that's a 5th generation Intel Core CPU. You can tell by the first 5 in the model number. This board only supports 8th and 9th generation Intel Core CPUs.
