so I called up , and spoke with the guy on the phone, who hung up on my once... He was of indian/muslum decent, and I could BARELY understand anything he said. They sent me an email later telling me that i was correct and the memory i bought would NOT work with my motherboard. I am now doing an exchange/upgrade to LOW DENSITY RAM. it cost me a total of about $128 now... and I still have to pay to ship this crap back.

I'll let you guys know how long this process takes....and if I end up getting the right ram !

they are charging you for the upgrade/exchange? or they are just allowing you to return it, they stick on their 15% restock fee, then let you buy the low density version at the right amount? (just wondering why the cost jumped some)

I'm sorry I lead you down the wrong path initially.... Hope fully things will work out.
