CML8GX3M2A1600C9 - compatibility or other problems?


Recommended Posts

I am running TrueNAS on an old box, and thought I'd upgrade the memory.

 

Motherboard is Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3P (rev. 2.0) and runs an Award BIOS.

 

I bought CML8GX3M2A1600C9 2x4GB modules. Everything I've read says it should be compatible. RAM is in white slots (1&3), BIOS settings are back to defaults.

 

The memory is recognised, however machine locks up loading the OS. memtest86 runs but system automatically reboots at 24% (2 processors ) or 48% (1 processor). Previous memory config (2x Kingston HyperX 2GB modules) works fine.

 

Grateful for any suggestions on getting this working. Of course it's possible that the memory is bad, but just wanted to check on compatibility/settings etc before I went down that route.

 

Thanks!
