MSI A78M-E45 mobo, DDR3 at 1600

Hi experts,

I have an MSI A78M-45 board.   2 8GB DDR3 1600 MHz sticks, all working great.

Then I add a pair of Crucial same specs, and the mobo just beeps, cant get to BIOS screen.

I pulled the original pair, and just tried the Crucial, this time fans come on, but no beeps, no video.


The Crucial sticks are

8GB DDR3 - 1600 1.35v DDR3L DR x


Are you able to tell if its a compatibility issues with this board?

Thank you.

Did you try the new memory in the slots occupied by the original RAM you pulled out?  Have you tried the new sticks one at a time by themselves?
