Having trouble with my motherboard and RAM. Please help me!!
Hey all, I'm building my first PC and I'm having some trouble.
Intel Core 2 Duo E6300
Antec one two trio 650W power supply
WD 600gb Sata HDD
Lite-ON DVD Drive
pqi 2 GB DDR2 SDRAM DDR3 533 PC2 4200 RAM
Intel DG965WH Media Series Motherboard
I got everything hooked up, and my tower power LED kept flashing, and the motherboard was not POSTing. I was using an Intel DG965WH Motherboard, and the RAM on it was qi TURBO 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory. I researched the motherboard, and that RAM is not compatible because it has such a low latency.(I'm not 100% sure about that, this is where I need the help.) I found it would be cheaper to get a better MoBo instead ofreturning the RAM and reorder compatible RAM because of a restocking free, so I found this motherboard. ASUS P5N-E SLI LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard.
So basically, will my RAM work with this motherboard, I really can't tell. I need to know ASAP because i Need to order the part before I leave for school this weekend. Thank you for the help!
