new build


Recommended Posts

Newbie here. Worked with pcs a long time, but this is my first build too. A friend helped me pick out the parts, and now I'm not sure about compatibility.


Motherboard: Asus M3N78 PRO

CPU: AMD Athlon X2 (Model 5000, Socket AM2)

Memory: two CORSAIR CM2X2048-6400C5 (total 4gb)


It was only after receiving the parts that I read the mobo manual and discovered that this Corsair memory is not on their approved list. Using the Memory Configurator here at Corsair's site, this seems to be confirmed because that mobo doesn't show up (though a similar one does).


I guess my main question at this point is this: I understand that neither Asus nor Corsair will guarantee that this combination will work. But is there any harm in trying? I'd rather not return this memory to the mail-order house if I don't have to. I'd prefer to see what happens first, but if there's a risk that I'll damage the memory in the process, then I'd better not.


Any suggestions? Thanks!
