I'm attempting to upgrade the Ram on my Gigabyte GA-G41M (Rev 2.0) motherboard from 4GB (2x2gb) to 8GB (2x4gb), but I'm having problems finding the correct 4GB ram modules.
I have already purchased and tried 2x4GB of corsair XMS3 but i just get continuous beeps at startup. After investigating this it seems that it didn't work because this ram uses a Single sided high density 512M ram chip, but this motherboard supports low density double sided 256M ram chips.
So can anybody point me to the correct ram for this motherboard. I believe what i need is 4GB 240pin 256M DDR3 Ram.
"Be careful. The chipset can only address low density 256MB RAM chips -buying ‘off the shelf’ 1333MHz DDR3 will result in failure to post (as the newer RAM sticks have single-sided high density 512MB RAM chips on the sticks). 8GB no problems there, so long as it is low-density double sided."
Thanks in advance
