i have motherboard (MSI X48C Platinum 7.4 BIOS) which is very picky. MSI X48C Platinum
I want to change my memory, but i'm not sure it will be work.
Motherboard support fast memory with XMP.
I want to buy and put this memory PXD38G1866ELK

Looking at system specs, your motherboard only supports up to 4GB max at 2GB per slot.
Your best bet is to go with our 4GB Signature DDR3-1600 memory kit, PSD34G1600K or PSD34G1600KH (heatsync version).
My motherboard support 8GB
• Supports four unbuffered DIMM of 1.5 Volt DDR3 800/1066/1333/1600 DRAM, 8GB Max
Can I take these two kit, which are you proposed?
Whether it will work 100%?
You can use (2) kits but you might have to downclock it to 1333MHz as we only test the rated configuration per kit.
Otherwise you might have to make other adjustments: such as increasing DRAM voltage to 1.6-1.85v, increasing tRFC to 100 or higher (if available), increase cpu voltage to 1.35v.
