I accidentally ordered KVR16N11/8 instead of KVR16N11H/8 and I'm wondering if I'm going to have compability issues with my Intel DP67DE motherboard.

When searching for compatible RAM on Kingstons site for that motherboard the KVR16N11H/8 RAM was one of the compatible ones. The KVR16N11/8 did not show up as compatible for that motherboard. The only difference I can see is that they have different physical height, or am I missing something?

According to the datasheets (KVR16N11H/8, KVR16N11/8), the KVR16N11/8 has exactly the same height, so as far as the specs are concerned, there isn't any difference at all.

The KVR16N11/8 datasheet is four months older, so I guess the H is a newer revision.

Thank you for the answer. I didn't even know there are datasheets available, so I learned something new today :) – rzetterberg Oct 4 '12 at 13:54
