  • F3-10666CL9D-8GBXL + MSI P55-GD55 + I3 540 @ 3.07GHz

    MSI P55-GD55
    I3 540 @3.07 GHz
    OLD RAM: Corsaire TR3X3G1333C9 1,50v
    NEW RAM: Gskill F3-10666CL9D-8GBXL 1,50v


    Recently bought a pair of ram F3-12800CL9D-8GBXM. i Can't run them with my motherboard. I had contacted the support gskill which tells me that these rams are incompatible with my processor because low voltage 1.35v and xmp even i could see it in the bios.

    I asked to my reseller for an exchange with the model F3-10666CL9D-8GBXL that the Gkill support recommendedand that was marked compatible on the gskill website with my motherboard MSI P55-GD55.

    To my great surprize it still does not work same problem that i had with F3-12800CL9D-8GBXM. I reset the cmos, i try different configuration in the bios and nothing does.

    I can enter in the bios only in single channel, dual channel , does not go until bios. I tested each stick of ram with memtest and none stick exceeded 11% of the test and the pc freeze. Windows wont start and Debian Linux Freeze when i exeed 1024Mb usage of ram.

    When I return to my old sticks all work, Memtest, Debian and Windows.

    Can you help me?

    Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english i hope you can understand

    P55 requires double sided memory chips

    This kit is guaranteed double sided:

      Hello And thanks

      But why it's compatible in gskill ram configurator and finally not?

        Chips have changed over time. Most 4GB modules are no longer double sided due to manufacturing improvement.
