Windows 7: ASUS M5A78L-M LX Motherboard with AMD 3.6 GHz AM3+ FX4100 Processor

25 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
ASUS M5A78L-M LX Motherboard with AMD 3.6 GHz AM3+ FX4100 Processor

Well, I want to upgrade my computer and I selected :

AMD 3.6 GHz AM3+ FX4100 Processor
ASUS M5A78L-M LX Motherboard
Transcend DDR3-1333 DDR3 4 GB PC RAM (JM1333KLN-4G)

Had to fit it all in my budget. So is the configuration correct cause i doubt the Ram will work fine with the processor. Because the processor supports 1866 memory type and the Ram is 1333 memory type. Well i am not sure so any help will be appreciated. I got this info regarding the Ram and Processor memory type on flipkart. Here are the links.

Flipkart: Transcend DDR3-1333 DDR3 4 GB PC RAM (JM1333KLN-4G): Ram

Flipkart: AMD 3.6 GHz AM3+ FX4100 Processor: Processor

ThankYou in Advance

The board may support DDR3-1866 memory, but the default frequency is lower (probably 1333).

If you want to play it very safe, buy memory from Asus' QVL (Qualified Vendors List). It's probably unnecessary, though.

ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS M5A78L-M LX

(Actually, the QVL looks like it was copied from a different board. It lists memory configurations that the M5A78LM LX doesn't support, as it has only 2 DIMM slots.)
