I'm upgrading my RAM from 4Gb to 8Gb 1333Mhz DDR3 kinsgton to my DH67CL mobo with an intel i3 2120 2nd generation processor.. When I started my desktop, there was no display, so i took one stick of 4Gb and it worked fine. i know my mobo and processor supports 32 Gb RAM. Both RAM have same specs.. Please help me. I followed all the guideline in my intel mobo guidelines.

In what configuration is the 8GB? Is it 2x4GB or 4x2GB? The reason I ask is that if you are running 4 sticks, with some lower end motherboards you have to tweak the voltage to the ram slightly (higher) to get all 4 sticks to work.

From the description of the problem (i.e. took one stick of 4GB), I believe he/she is using two sticks of 4 GB modules.

Is the voltage requirement for both memory modules the same? Sometimes it is very difficult to ascertain the voltage information for RAM. I had a similar problem just yesterday, and it turned out to be a voltage discrepancy.

I solved the problem by buying another identical memory module. I know it costs more this way, but 4 GB is fairly inexpensive nowadays.
