I think I got incompatible memory Tags: New Build Asus Motherboards Memory Systems Last response: February 17, 2010 10:33 PM in Systems Share pudg777 February 17, 2010 7:21:35 PM Hey all, Just got my shipment from Newegg in today and I am pretty sure I made a mistake. My mobo is Asus M4A79XTD Evo and the memory isn't listed on Asus's qualified vendors list. Here are the links for the motherboard and the memory. What should I do??? Can this not work and if it can work what kind of risks am i taking on? Thanks mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131402&nm_mc=TEMC-RMA-Approvel&cm_mmc=TEMC-RMA-Approvel-_-Content-_-text-_- memory http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231303&nm_mc=TEMC-RMA-Approvel&cm_mmc=TEMC-RMA-Approvel-_-Content-_-text-_- More about : incompatible memory coldsleep February 17, 2010 7:24:20 PM Are you concerned about the "manufactured for Intel blah blah..." on the RAM? That's just marketing-speak that means that it runs at 1.65 V or less. The RAM should work fine in your motherboard. pudg777 February 17, 2010 7:26:25 PM I figured it would work fine when i bought it but when i looked up the ram on the mobo's qualifed vendor list it wasnt on there and thats why i am concerned.

Just adjust the timings and voltage (if need) and you'll be fine. darkjuggalo2000 February 17, 2010 10:33:49 PM it will default to 1333 so you may have to change some settings anyway Can't find your answer ?
