Model Number Compatability


Recommended Posts

I would like to update my system to 8GB. The motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-EP35C-DS3R, which supports DDR2 (what I have) and DDR3 (which I want). So I ordered Corsair Vengeance DDR3 2x4GB (cmz8gx3m2a1600c9r), but when I installed it my system it refused to boot. It was at that point I noticed the small print that the MB spec was 1333/1066/800, not 1600. Okay, my bad.


The problem is that if I go to the memory finder what they show as compatible (CMX8GX3M4B1333C9) or (CMP8GX3M4A1333C9) seems to be 4x2GB and that will not fit on that motherboard (4 DDR2 & 2 DDR3 slots). SO, what I want to know BEFORE I order it is, would a (CMX8GX3M2A1333C9) (2x4GB) work ?
