Hello everyone . Have if you can help me . I have a motherboard Asrock N68C - s ucc Socket AM2 on my pc , CPU : AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ 2100mhz . I have installed 1GB DDR2 . The motherboard supports DDR2 and DDR3 . 4GB DDR3 2x2GB would like to install . But the support page out old memories . I wonder if any of these reports would be worth to put two modules : 1 Kingston ValueRAM  DDR3 - 2 GB - DIMM 240-pin - 1600 MHz / PC3-12800 - CL11 - 1.5 V - non-ECC Kingston ValueRAM 2 -  DDR3 - 2 GB - DIMM 240-pin - 1333 MHz / PC3-10600 - CL9 - 1.5 V - non-ECC 3 - Crucial - DDR3 - 2 GB - DIMM 240-pin DDR3 - 2 GB - DIMM 240-pin - 1600 MHz / PC3-12800 - CL11 - 1.5 V - non-ECC . English forgive evil . Greetings from barcelona . Thank you very much to allWink

The memory support lists for Asrock and most other manufacturers is almost never updated from the time of release and even then only covers a smattering of more popular RAM brands and sizes. 

However in your case if your CPU is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ then you are out of luck, AM2 CPUs only support DDR2. In order to use DDR3 you will need an AM3 CPU (which will still work in your AM2 board) in order to support it. If you install an AM3 CPU (not AM3+ as I doubt your board will support that) then any of the RAM you listed provided it is 1.5v should be fine.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
