Compatible RAM for ASUS M4A88T-M Motherboard

:hello: Hi. I want to know if anyone from experience has used this EXACT :o motherboard the "ASUS M4A88T-M"... I had to RMA a single 4 GB RAM module (Kingston KVR1333D3N9/4G)... at first I just thought it was incompatible but... I've read twice on the Kingston website (before and after I bought it) that this EXACT RAM was compatible with this EXACT motherboard so when the red LED on the motherboard lit up and it didn't boot I didn't know what to think, it just stays frozen (black screen, no video output). for 3 day straight I've tried reseating it (on all 4 RAM slots)... I have cleared CMOS, cleaned the actual RAM with alcohol, pressed the MemOk! button...I tried everything already I even posted this on here and it was suggested that I RMA so I did... I will be getting a replacement in a couple of days but I also want to order a second stick of RAM to see if it was just the memory that was incompatible or if its the motherboard that's defective. Or if it was just a bad stick of RAM

Here's proof...

Select "4GB" and "Single Module" on the left and its the second last one


So its "compatible"...


So basically to save time and money I would like to know which RAM worked for you only IF you have used this EXACT motherboard... any help would be appreciated :) . Oh and I'm on a VERY tight budget, 25$ and under, Single 4GB module if you can please. Thanks

    It will, but it voids the warranty @ 1.65V.

    Choose 1.5V and be done.
