|my ram is red in color 4gb x 2|
the second link from what riider has stated
Yes i have tried everything in the bios--- changed the timings and increased the voltage to 1.65v. Nothing seems to work and i know these rams are intel certified but are supposed to work as per the specs @ 1600mhz 9-9-9-24 but no it defaults to 11-11-11-28 @ 1600 mhz.
I am able to overclock cpu to 4.2 Ghz but nothing with the ram.
my mobo is gigabyte 880gm-usb3 rev 1.0 AM3 socket.
By the way this is a kit and am using only this and not together.
My other rams i tried work just fine. 8 gb Gskill sniper @1600 9-9-9-24 default.
i Assume this ram is incompatible but it works OR might be a manufacturing defect.
I need your help !!
