Hello experts,

I have a Gigabyte P55A-UD3P rev 1.
What RAM does this motherboard support?

http://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-P55A-UD3P-rev-10...
The website says that it supports DDR3 2200/1600/1333/1066/800 MHz, but I was told by several shops that 2200 and 1600 MHz is unstable with this motherboard.

Can someone please advise?

Thank you in advanced.

Officially CPU only supports 1333 MHz, but 1600 MHz RAM work just fine at 1333 MHz speed.

Is there any software requirement for it to work?

Like Bios, etc?

Adjust memory speed on BIOS.

Can someone please help verify if this RAM is compatible with my motherboard?

 

Thanks in advanced.

My general advice to anyone considering a memory change is to download and run the Crucial System Scanner and pay attention to what it returns as far as compatible memory.

 

While it is, of course, going to show you Crucial products it isn't those specific products that are important, per se, but the specs on same.

 

I have never been steered wrong by this tool and it gives you lots of good information about how many slots you have, what's currently in each slot, and what the maximum amount of memory that the system will handle actually is.

 

If the specs for the RAM you gave the link to match what the Crucial System Scanner declares is compatible then you should be good to go.

Assuming there is no random compatibility problems, yes.
