Broken In
I bought 2x4gb of transcend 1333mhz(Ts512mlk64v3h,u-dimm) ram for my Asus p5g41tmlx3 and the pc is not booting with the new ram but it works fine with my old ram(2x2gb)Ramaxel 1066mhz.

Hi there,

For any hardware setup, you have to check the specification and the compatibility of the MOBO with other devices. For RAM setup, all the sticks will need to run at the same voltage, speed and timings. If any one of the statics are different to each other in settings, then the RAM channel configuration shows as incompatible or it will unrecognized by the MOBO.

In your case, you might need to up the RAM voltage a bit to compensate for new setup.

Good Luck.

Did you check the Asus QVL list for your motherboard before getting the Transcend modules ? I know that many modules which are not listed on the QVL also works fine but that should at-least give you some good idea if you are not too sure. Moreover buying Transcend ram is a big NO NO as of now for their pathetic service.

Anyway, since you've bought it can you mention what power supply and processor you are using ? Also do you have the latest bios version for the motherboard ?
