    What happened when you installed the other stick of ram by itself?

  4. sorry i was'nt checking on the answers....My bad..i finaly found out the mobo asus p7p55lx was not compatible with intel i3...So replaced it with a biostar compatible mobo...And voila!!!!!It worked...Thank you for responding to my request...
  5. Glad you figured it out. Seems odd that it wouldn't support it. I did notice that newegg.com doesn't list i3 in their support list but the asus website does. interesting.
