I wouldn't worry too much about QVLs - all the major players (Corsair, Patriot, GSkill, Kingston, Crucial, etc.) test their sticks in all mainstream boards, and it's rare that there's a compatibility problem, especially on the last 3 generations of chipsets. For example, on my Asus P8Z77-V, the QVL is now showing RAM as high as 2600, and more vendors are added with each update, so the 2400 list gets bigger, and so on down the line. It's fairly safe to assume, therefore, that any name-brand 2400 sticks will run on my motherboard. The Kingston HyperX Beast 2400 DIMMs I just installed weren't on the list, and they run perfect. So do your search starting from lowest price, limit it by total memory size (8 GB [2 x 4 GB]) and desired speed (2133 MHz) and you'll see that the list starts at $44.99 for Kingston HyperX 2133 with tall blue heat spreaders, a solid name brand, and actually very good RAM if you have room for the absurdly tall heat sinks. I guarantee it will work with your motherboard, as will anything probably at that speed.
