I picked this memory up used. I get random blue screens, some of them memory management . I was looking at the part number and noticed its this memory.

I believe that it doesn't make a difference and that it should run 1260mhz on my board. It doesn't. So should this memory run on my board?

That kit should be able to run 7-7-7-21 - 1333mhz at 1.65v. So first of all make sure that the memory voltage is set correctly, and then check in Cpu-z's memory tab what timings they are currently at.

Also run memtest+ v4.0 to check if it's really the memory.

It doesnt. I just wanted to verify that it should run on this board. I traded some DDR2 for it thinking I could use it when I get another ddr3 board. I guess I will have to rma it.

I just bought this memory from Newegg.

This board wont run it at 1600mhz with advertised timings. But it will run it slower.Maybe something isn't right with the board.

Yeah well DDR3 doesn't work very well with P45, DDR2 works much better with overclocking and all on a P45 board. DDR3 is meant for AM3/1156/1366.

But at least you can safely try a higher voltage, so you could try raising the memory voltage to 1.7v and see if it's stable then.

Figured someone would say that. I plan to move on from 775 soon anyway.
Thanks for the input.
