    Default Good news and bad news

    So I recently won an AMD a8 6600k CPU and I bought a Biostar Hi-Fi A85W off the egg. The mother board came with 8gb of crucial low profile ram and I thought it was a great deal so I got it. When I was installing all the parts I kept getting errors and blue screens when trying to install the OS. So I took a 4gn stick out of my main rig and it worked perfect. So now I have 8gb of ram that I can't use because the board doesn't like the low voltages and am wondering what to do. Anybody want to trade for some low voltage ram?

    It was a great deal it's just too bad that the memory isn't compatible. I think I would be madder if it wasn't free in the combo

    Crucial won't RMA it for you? If they are aware of the problem, why don't they fix it. I mean if you can provide proof of purchase it should be covered under MFG warranty!

    The ram works fine in my x79-ud3 and doesn't have any errors but the Biostar mobo must not like the low volts. I'm going to try and talk to newegg and see if they can do anything. I don't know why they would combo them together if they weren't compatible.

    What are the volts?? 1.5??? It's weird, I had 1.5volts installed in my APU system and it has no issues...

    Yea, i would try to update the bios.. I had to update my bios for 2 boards before I was able to use the Rickland Processors. Otherwise it wouldn't boot..
