  • ASUS P5Q3 Deluxe + Core 2 Duo E8400 + F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL

    Per the topic title, I have an ancient system:

    ASUS P5Q3 Deluxe (P45 chipset), 2105 BIOS (newest)
    Core 2 Duo E8400

    Currently it has 4 GB of RAM, G.Skill F3-12800CL7D-4GBHZ, but only running at 1333 MHz to match the CPU's 333 FSB clock (no overclocking). This machine runs great, but 4 GB of RAM is just not enough these days (a browser can burn up 2 GB with only a handful of tabs). According to the user manual for the P5Q3 Deluxe, it should work with 16 GB of RAM, but the QVL list is terrible (and of course, ancient).

    I found and bought two of the G.Skill F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL kits from Newegg Canada, which are compatible with P45 according to the description.

    However, when I install these, the system won't boot. Won't even start to boot, really. The display never comes on, and there's not even a beep from the system speaker. I tried with just one pair as well, same problem.

    I take this to mean that these kits are fully not compatible with this motherboard. Is that correct?

    If not, then what can I try to make it work? Or if so (incompatible), is there any G.Skill kit that will work with this motherboard and is still available somewhere? I need 8 GB minimum, but 16 GB is preferred.

    Thank you for your help.

    Correct, they may have newer DDR3 chips that your motherboard did not get updates for. You will need to return that memory for the ones below.

    Two of these should be able to work:
