I doubt it. Server boards have very specific specs, and many have few adjustments. Check your bios carefully with the manual memory settings. The max memory speed may be 1066, not 1333. I never pay a premium price for memory unless I know it overclocks well with my board and I have a good power supply. Don't expect your board to perform better with premium memory; just use what's recommended. Paying more for higher rated memory is a waste of $$.
