Not a matter of too fast. Even if it's too fast it will downgrade to the default memory controller's speed.
Your RAM is considered a high dense RAM for this board. Do note the maximum amount of RAM supported for your board is 8GB.
high dense RAM for this board?
do you mean this RAM won't work with this board?
Yes that's exactly what I mean.
You need to use a RAM stick with 1GB or 2GB max
If you want my advice get two RAM sticks & operate in Dual Channel mode
Check this link for tested memory modules:
Simply cause they tested a 4GB module doesn't necessarily mean that yours should work
I saw this page. They wrote 4GB DIMM so I thought it would work... I'll try 2x2GB.
All the information given by Ziad Aghar is correct; just remember that this motherboard was designed to use DDR3-1333/1066/800 Ghz, with the maximum memory size of 8GB.
Some basic troubleshooting you can perform for this issue could be the following;
- Test the system out of the chassis, minimal configuration please. (Motherboard, processor, power supply, 1 memory stick on DIMM #1 and video card)
- Remove the CMOS battery and leave the system without it for about an hour. Then put it back on and restart the system.
- Test the system placing another stick of memory on another DIMM.
