first thing I would check is the voltages. what voltage is the ram designed to run at, and what is the default voltage set at in the motherboard? often times, especially with performance memory, you need to change to voltage on the motherboard in order for it to run correctly. what brand/type/model is your ram, and what type of motherboard/computer are you trying to put it into?

that ram runs at 2.5v. to see if thats the right voltage for your system, go into your bios and choose the pc health option if available, it will tell you what voltage it is running the ram at. if it is not 2.5 it may involve changing the voltage. however, 2.5v is a common voltage and I dont see why your computer would not be set at it, but it would still be good to check.
