Trying to understand ram labels of the ram i have purchased and the number that represents the JEDEC SPD revision encoding and additions is 11. All other numbers match exactly the ram thats working in my pc however the ram that works has SPD value of 10, it seems my board is only compatible with SPD value 10 or below. Any suggestions what might be happening

What is SPD. and why is it important. More simply SPD was the mainboard and memory manufacture's solution to keep you from having to (back in the day) manually enter in all the timing /cas to ras/etc. that the memory module is capable of.  The cmos reads the SPD from the module and enters the value itself.  You may be able to flash your bios (upgrade it) so that the mainboard detects more/better memory configurations.  However doing so can cause more headaches than it is worth.  A failed flash can cause your system to no longer POST at all and simply put it may not solve your problem.  On the other hand it could.  There is really no way for us to tell you the best course of action other than getting a module that your system is capable of running.
