I have purchased from G-Skill the following stick (part# F3-10666CL-9D-8GBRL)
 
DD3-1333 CL9-9-9-24 1.5V
PC3-10666
4GBX2 Plug and play
 
I am guessing it is the  PC3-10666 part that is giving me the problem(?) - my computer will not run with these installed
 
G-Skill RAM configurator does not have my model #
 
bought a pair for $40, about where I wanted to be - was wondering is someone can point me in the right direction with this
 
Thanks so much!
 
Matt

You would be right. Most modern RAM is sold with the lowest speed being DDR3-1333 (PC3-10666). If you want to use modern RAM, you will need a motherboard that supports its speeds.

Thank you

 

 

 So you are saying the ram  DDR3-1333 (PC3-10666)  is too slow for my system-

 

And something like this would work? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820239612  (Kingston 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333)

 

Capacity 8GB (2 x 4GB)

Type 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM

Speed DDR3 1333

Cas Latency 9 Voltage

1.5V

ECC No Buffered/Registered Unbuffered

Multi-channel Kit Dual Channel Kit  

 

Thanks again!   Matt

I'm saying the ram is too fast for your system. If you want faster RAM you will need a newer motherboard that supports it, or slower RAM. however, it is very difficult to find DDR3 slower than 1333MTps these days (slower than DDR3-1333).

Plenty of RAM available that I can see.
