Finding which memory are officially supported by a specific motherboard model is easy, via it's QVL. My case is sort of a reversed one. My old mobo is gone and I have to buy a new one, so I already have the memories (Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 1600MHz CL8).

I don't know if this is worth the effort, but is there any way I can find which motherboards have my memory model in their QVL? Hope it's obvious that 'brute force' search isn't appropriate.

If they still sell your model of ram you can try PCPartPicker to find compatible motherboards.
