Those memory modules are designed for Intel Lynnfield processors. So they are not designed for AMD platform. If you want to gamble then better go to the casino, it is more fun :yawn:

Best is to stick to the memory QVL if possible. If you still want to try other modules, then carefully check the specs on the memory manufacturer's website. Many modules nowadays are designed for selected platforms. And some require changing the DRAM voltage in BIOS to run at higher frequencies.
