My motherboard is MSI FM2-A55M-E33 Motherboard. The MSI website says it supports Corsair Corsair [Value Select] Model ID - CMV8GX3M1A1600C- Memory Type- DDR3, frequency 1600 , 512M8DDLG- 1.5V.

The RAM that i purchased matches all the specications above , but does not match the last two digits of model id - My RAM model ID is CMV4GX3M1A1600C11. Is this RAM series Compatible with my motherboard?

Go to your motherboard company's website and check the compatibility list.

MSI FM2-A55M-E33 Motherboard's compatibility list.

This is a list of all the hardware that has been ACTUALLY tested by the motherboard company. All companies do this for their motherboard.

i checked but it does not list model Is this RAM series Compatible with my motherboard?

Just because this ram isn't on the list, doesn't mean it's not going to work. As long as the motherboard specifications (DDR3 1066/1333/1600/1866/2133*(OC)) are the same as your memory, then the likelyhood the ram is going to work is very high, but not a 100%. Which is why they release a compatibility list for each motherboard in the first place, so there is no doubt.
