Hi guys, I have a ASUS P5G41T-M LX PLUS LGA 775 and I need help on picking out a compatible memory for it. It says that Dual-channel DDR3 1333(OC)/1066/800 I've checked the memory support list but I can't seem to find any of those on newegg. I'm really noob on picking memory. I used to have a " G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500)" but its not quite stable I get freezes during load and tests on prime95/memtest I have to lower down the MHz on the bios to make it stable but not quite sure if it is it doesn't freeze on load but around 5 hrs of idle it freezes I'll do a RMA on it. So can anyone please help me out on picking out a RAM on newegg? counting on you guys ;)

CPU: Core 2 Quad Q6600
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Motherboard:
GPU: Radeon HD 5670
PSU: CORSAIR CX430 V2
HDD: WD 80GB
OS: Win7 64 bit

I did run memtest for around 6 hours but freezed. When I tried to run it again it won't pass around 5-6mins just freezes then I tried tweaking around the bios changed the DRAM to 800Mhz after that no freezes occured after that but on idle around 5 hours it freezes still so I just wanted to return it and get a new one. So you think this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... would run perfectly on my setup? :D

Yes, look at those people on newegg. Its right with in your specs.

86% (279) rated it 5 out of 5.

I like that RAM too. I use Corsair Vengeance, but this brand is my second choice.

If I were you, I would try to swap another PSU, just to be sure.

Even if yours is great, it could be the problem.

Well, u never know : )

Actually I used to have a Dynex 400W when I assumed it was the problem but when bought the Corsair CX430 v2 same freezing issue happened.
