On intel's site my 1156 cpu says max 4gb dimm if dual ranked, but they were made before 8gb sticks. Gskill claims that their 8x2gb kits are supported by 1156.

And the PC will not boot. Share Memorypleasenow March 1, 2013 1:37:04 PM Best answer selected by Memorypleasenow. Score 0 Can't find your answer ? Ask !
