    Question on CPU, RAM, Motherboard Compatibility


      Hi there,

      We have this question from IT Peer Network. Can you respond to us here: http://communities.intel.com/message/200119#200119

      Question from


      If the wrong RAM is plugged into a MoBo will it ruin the MoBo

      I bought a MSI Intel P67 B3, LGA 1155  Motherboard MS-7673 V 1.0 - Core i3-2100 3.1GHz - Patriot DDR3 4GB 1600MHz.

      Both the processor and the RAM are compatible with the MoBo but the processor isn't compatible with the RAM. I plugged it in and the board didn't power up. I am purchasing the right RAM, but might I have damaged the MoBo in the process?

      The Processor only takes DDR3-1066/1333 and the RAM I plugged in is 1600 MHz.


      Thanks much.
