You say " Have chipsets from the following list (if you have two chipsets on your board, they must both be on this list):

*.SiS Chipsets
*.VIA P4X266A,
*.VIA KT266/333
*.VIA KT600 (except ASUS KT600)
*.VIA PT800
* 648FX
* KM400
* K8T800
* KT 880
* KT 400
* KT 400A


Your chipset is a SiS746FX which isn't on the list

Surely the first entry qualifies it - SiS Chipsets ?. In any case, I'd always recommend memory from click here rather than EBay. Return and get your money back.

as has been pointed out your motherboard dosent support the ram modules

these stick do work as i have 2 in my system
running fast and fine
timings on mine are 3-3-3 2.5 nothing slow about that
manufacturer is samsung
but like is pointed out they are from all sort of mnfcurers so its trial n error if your board sticks close to the jdec agreement

you could try manualy lowering the ram timing in bios as a last ditch atempt to get them working

also dont mix them with your existing ram
give it a shot there,s nothing to lose
