Look for a memory "qvl" file on the webpage for your board at gigabyte's website. See if any adata is listed; only a few models of ram are listed for any board. They can't test them all. Just because yours isn't listed doesn't mean it won't work. And if you're trying to overclock the cpu, set the ram speed manually to a lower speed, such as 1066 before you attempt to overclock the cpu. I set a limit of 25% for my overclock for stability and low heat (I use mostly the stock heatsink). Adata may not work with your board. I use gskill, corsair, kingston, and patriot ram in a variety of boards. I suggest you look for a vender that carries these brands or use ebay.
