I have a question about system memory compatibility. I want to add 2GB of memory to my A8n-SLI Premium motherboard. I am currently running standard 1GB X2 184pin DDR SDRAM 400 (PC3200). I ordered two more 1GB . They are A-Data V-Series 2GB (2 X 1GB). The voltage is 2.7v on the A_Data. The memory on my system is 2.6v. Is the A-Data memory compatible with the 2.6v memory? The only difference between the two memories is the voltage. I also have another system, another ASUS board I could probably use the A-Data memory on alone if I have to. I would appreciate any advise. I am new at this.
The memory arrived and I installed it and the system wouldn't boot with the new memory or when it was installed alone. Each time I had to clear the RTC ram to go back to the original memory alone. Nothing I did would let the system run with the new memory or with the new memory alone. The manual doesn't show as compatible the A-Data 1GB RAM. It shows 512MB and 256MB A-Data RAM as compatible. I guess the memory goes back. Definitely not a bargain at any price.
Thanks for that link. I'll have to study that information. The memory went back today. I even considered looking for another motherboard that I could use that memory for. I checked out buyer information at Newegg.com and checked for other motherboards and didn't find any other motherboards that would handle that memory.
