Is this RAM compatible with my current motherboard?

My motherboard right now is a Gigabyte GA-P41T-D3P and I have 4GB DDR3 RAM, but I want to upgrade to this 8GB (2x4GB) Corsair DDR3 XMS3, PC3-10600 (1333), Non-ECC Unbuffered, CAS 9-9-9-24, 1.50V.
Will this be compatible? Is it safe to buy?

  1. It's safe to buy, but according to the QVL, 1333MHz modules are downgraded to 1066MHz. I presume that you already checked the QVL? Unfortunately Corsair don't list your motherboard.
  2. 1.5v DDR3-1333 is supported in overclocking mode, if cpu is running on standard FSB1066, then it will run as DDR3-1066.

    I would just buy cheaper DDR3-1333 rather than expensive brand, as you will see no real difference.

    For example, ebuyer.com has your 2x4GB @ £40.38, while 2x4GB Crucial @ £29.18, both excluding delivery.
  3. So basically what you two are saying that I should buy it and it will work with my motherboard regardless?
    In the future I'm going to be changing my processor and motherboard, so I suppose it can't really hurt to have this RAM ready.
  4. It will work, but as das_stig wrote, you could buy a less expensive kit.
