Question Cmx16gx3m4a1333c9

I have purchased Asus - M5A78L-M PLUS/USB3 Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard with AMD - FX-6300 3.5 GHz 6-Core Processor and Corsair - XMS3 16 GB (4 x 4 GB) DDR3-1333 Memory (CMX16GX3M4A1333C9),
a Gigabyte - GeForce GTX 260 896 MB Video Card and FSP Group - 400 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular Fanless ATX Power Supply. With the Compatibility Check: No issues/incompatibilities found. How comes at startup it did not work.

The ram did not work with Asus P5Q3 motherboard even With the Compatibility Check: No issues/incompatibilities found

Hello Zonne,

Sorry to hear that you are having these issues. Unfortunately it is likely a compatibility issue. The memory definitely will not work with the Asus P5Q3 as the memory is high density and the C2D/C2Q series require low density memory. Have you tried the modules individually on the M5A78L-M? I am not positive if that chipset would require low density memory or not.
