Asus P7H55-m Pro 16Gb Upgrade

hi corsair team ;):

 

 

I have some questions :

 

I have a Asus P7h55-m Pro Motherboard With 4*2Gb of DDR3 and I want to replace all of them with a 4*4Gb kit or a least two 2*4Gb Kits But after couple of day without sleeping on google I can’t make a good choice for a total Compatibility…and finally I will annoying you :D:

 

I try your memory selector but Asus p7h55-m pro is no longer listed …

Web site: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P7H55M_PRO/

Last PDF Documentation : http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1156/P7H55-M_PRO/E5321_P7H55-M_PRO_v2.zip

 

What I know, P7h55-m pro:

- Have an intel h55 chipset

- Support 4 x DIMM, Max. 16 GB, DDR3 2133(O.C.)*/1333/1066 Non-ECC,Un-buffered Memory - Dual Channel memory architecture - Supports Intel® Extreme Memory Profile (XMP)

- does not support DIMMs made up of 512Mb (64MB) chips or less (High density Memory???)

- ,due to intel spec definition, X.M.P. DIMM and DDR3-1600 are supported for one DIMM per channel only (but I think Ram With SPD @1333Mhz can be manually up to 1600Mhz in BIOS Setup –If You Can Confirm That? --)

 

What I read on forums:

- H55 chipset (maybe p7h55-m pro) doesn’t work with High density Memory (apparently)

 

Well to be easy what is compatible with this motherboard ?:

You motherboard is not listed and the closest is http://www2.corsair.com/configurator/new_configurator_product_results.aspx?sc=&id=1522765.

 

I suspect your option #10 (http://www.corsair.com/en-gb/vengeance-low-profile-blue-16gb-dual-channel-ddr3-memory-kit-cml16gx3m4a1600c9b) is the only sensible option.

 

You should get a one 4 x 4GB kit rather than two 2 x 4GB kits to ensure all 4 DIMMs are matched.

Thank you for reply I am very grateful for that :roll:

 

I do exactly the same way choose a Mobo very very close with H55 Chipset instead of H57 Chipset on Asus Mobo but I afraid to make a bad choice :sigh!:

 

and after weeks of research I have the same opinion than you : Corsair vengeance Low profile … Or Corsair dominator …

Corsair vengeance Low profile SPD 1333Mhz 1.5v and up to 1600Mhz with 1.5v too, but (“but” is always the problem lol) I show a lots of threads where p7h55m doesn’t boot or recognize this DDR3 due high density memory architecture (https://www.computerbase.de/forum/showthread.php?t=1309753, http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-2882094/p7h55-motherboard-vengeance-2x4-ram-compatibility.html, http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=128349&highlight=p7h55-m) and one thread with the P7h55m pro with corsair vengeance blue 4*4Go (I guess it’s Low Profile Version) and it work (http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-2819974/upgrade.html) and Corsair ram Expert say the same as you :(http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=107477&highlight=p7h55) I expect this RAM maybe had a revision of architecture of memory with time to High density memory…

Also I know with this thread (http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=95332) apparently Corsair vengeance is tested on sandy bridge Mobo and have High density memory, I guess corsair vengeance LP (not pro version) can be compatible …

 

also, For second choice (and it cost more than corsair vengeance low Profile, but I have a great low price with summer sale on it :p:) : two kit of Corsair Dominator 8 Go (2x 4 Go) DDR3 1600 MHz CL9 Kit Dual Channel RAM DDR3 PC12800 – CMP8GX3M2A1600C9 according with corsair forum thread of a p7h55m user (http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=107477&highlight=p7h55) and I think Dominator is upper quality than vengeance series and oldest too, I guess this DDR have no High density Memory …

 

Finally if I can’t grab more responses of p7h55m pro user (or expert) on this post, I think I will buy two kit Dominator 8 Go (2x 4 Go) DDR3 1600 MHz CL9 Kit Dual Channel RAM DDR3 PC12800 – CMP8GX3M2A1600C9 and if it’s not compatible I try to exchange with One Kit of Corsair Vengeance Low Profile Blue Series 16 Go (4x 4 Go) DDR3 1600 MHz CL9 Kit Dual Channel 4 -RAM DDR3 PC12800 - CML16GX3M4A1600C9B buy to my favorite reseller who can accept exchange easily

 

Again, that very nice to you to help me :roll:, Thanx Dude :p:

 

kind regards :cool:

Hello,

 

Thank for this thread very useful.

 

I have Same Needs than Nico ( on pourrait parler en French ! )

 

I got a CML16GX3M4A1600C9B kit as a Second option you proposed.

 

But it doesn't work.

The machine reboot many time and freeze on ASUS Welcome Screen ( ASUS P7H55-M PRO ). BIOS is up to date ( version 1709 01/04/2011 ) and setup with default values before to put this kit. I decided to return this kit.

 

So I'm going to try to get 2 kit of CMP8GX3M2A1600C9 as validated by Nico.

 

Nico Is there something special to do when putting the 2 kit ?

Default BIOS Setup should allow me to boot ?

I'll see later how to use the memory at 1600..

 

Regards, merci d'avance !

Salut fabien,

 

Donc oui j ai bien 16Go (4*4Go) sur ma p7h55-m pro, au moment de l install j ai laissé par defaut et aucuns problèmes le SPD(config de base de la ram) est reglé sur 1333 Mhz ensuite j ai choisi la valeur XMP a 1600Mhz et tout fonctionne correctement .. par contre j ai du changer auprès de mon fournisseur deux fois de suite car les barrettes avaient un défaut de conception et seulement 8Go était détecté au lieu de 16Go et au 3eme changement tout a parfaitement fonctionné ...

 

voila ^^

 

 

Hi fabien,

 

yes I have 16GB (4 * 4GB) on my p7h55-m pro, at the boot I set to default SPD at boot (basic configuration of the ram) was set to 1333 Mhz then I chose The XMP 1600Mhz value and everything works correctly .. but I have to change to my supplier twice because one RAM kit had defect and only 8GB was detected instead of 16GB and at the 3rd change, everything worked perfectly ...
