Ya, I found some cheap on craigslist and was wondering if the heat sinks would squeeze under my cooler. Guess I'm not gonna buy them.
oh! well thanks for the info
That Patriot is VERY old DDR3 designed for LGA 775 boards. As such ( I can't find it or sure ) it very likely is 1.7 or even 1.8v RAM and as such dangerous to newer systems designed for 1.5-1.65v max RAM.
oh jeez. thanks alot bud. dont need to wreck my new a4
Yep found it for sure. It's 1.8v. That will destroy any newer Intel or AMD setup. The memory controllers for both are on the CPU now and the absolute max is 1.65v with 1.5v needed for Intel.
