Newbi with Biostar MoBo/ Patriot Ram Question

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

while searching the net for advise I stumbled across this Board and hope that someone here can answer my question.

I have a Biostar A880G+ MoBo and just got some:

Patriot G2 Series PGD34G1333ELK Division 2 Edition Desktop Memory Kit - 4GB (2 x 2GB) PC3-10666, DDR3-1333MHz, 9-9-9-24 CAS Latency, XPM Ready

After browsing the Biostar Homepage I recognized that this RAM is not on there but I also saw that other not listed RAMs also work with the Board.

Could someone of the experts here tell me if they could work? Should I open them up and risk not be able to return them?

I really appreciate your help and look forward to your answers.

THX in advance

They will work fine.
The approved list usually excludes even nicer stuff like Mushkin.

I can't guarantee anything for you.
Though generic 1333 CL9 should work in all situations regardless, Patriot decided to be total idiots and tack this with a massive 1.65V rating. Which means it's no longer generic memory, just a high voltage piece of crap that claims "performance" and "low latency". Screw you Patriot.
More than likely it'll turn out crappy.
Don't expect it to undervolt to 1.5V and work either (someone who wrote a Newegg review tried that, it wasn't even capable of generic settings at 1.5V now that is just unacceptable)

Oh !?

THX to both of you. Now I am a little bit worried.

Any suggestions then?

I'd probably try something else if it's not too inconvenient, my board is not a fan of generic 1333 ram, very finicky with the stuff.

The 1066 ocz I have is much more stable and actually clocks faster at lower volts

THX a lot for your answers!

@ xd_1771

The RAM you posted is 1.65 also? Is that right?

Yes, performance memory + 1.65V is pretty standard, no problem. But generic memory + 1.65V is unacceptable.
