Memory Compatibility issue MSI P55GD65

Hello,

 

I have a 5 years old PC with an MSI P55GD65 motherboard.

I wanted to change the RAM.

Here is the old ones:

G.Skill , DIMM DDR3,2*2 Go running at 'PC10600' Frequency (This is 1333MHz right?).

 

And here is the new one I wanted: 2*

Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333 MHz, DDR3, 4 Go, 1333 MHz, 9-9-9-24, 1,50 Volts, CMX4GX3M1A1333C9.

 

After change the PC just won't boot. No sound, nothing.

I have tried a replacement of the of one with the new ones (one of the DIMM slot is unaccessible due to the cooler)

 

I don't understand why it is not compatible.

I have checked on MSI website:

https://fr.msi.com/product/motherboard/P55GD65.html#hero-specification

 

The frequency compatibility, type and voltage.

May be it is not a memory issue, but in the end it is the only thing I changed.

 

Any idea is welcome

Hi,

 

I am trying to replace the RAM. I don't wanna use the G.Skill RAM any more.

Instead I wanna use the Corsair CMX4GX3M1A1333C9, on an MSI motherboard.

 

Ah here is the misleading part:

"I have tried a replacement of the old one with the new ones (one of the DIMM slot is unaccessible due to the cooler)"

 

sorry for the tippo...

This module should technically be low density and be compatible with your set up. Do you have the motherboard's bios up to date?

Hum. It seems pretty complex to upgrade the bios.

Do you recomand any website ? I have seen at leaast 3 different ways to do that ?

 

You should be able to find info on the motherboard manufacturer's website, along with instructions in it, or the manual itself.

End of the story.

I dismounted the processor blower and set is straight. Then changed the RAM. it worked.

 

The explanation is most likely due to the processor blower which tends to fall on the wrong side.

 

Thanks you every body
