    OK just blue screened again, whilst reading this forum with firefox, only 2 DIMM's installed the 2 A-DATA sticks in slots 1 and 3 no dmp file though wich is odd! as I saw the BSOD writing the dmp file? I'm going to try the 2 GEIL sticks now and see if they're stable.

    Here's the dmp file for a crash with the 2 A-DATA sticks in 1 and 3 I managed to recreate it this morning. Does this mean that the GEIL ram is OK?

    Currently running the A-DATA in slots 1 and 2 to see what happens.

    Stable with the A-DATA Dimm's in 1 and 2!

    Now here's the thing? after reviewing the manual, it shows 3 combinations of how to use the Dual chanel function and says check the table below to see the 3 combinations, until today I had never found this table as it's not below the text but actually on the page above! until today I'd assumed it was the same as my Asus A8N Sli prem board! certainly the Dimm slots are colour coded the same Green 1 and 3 - Purple 2 and 4.... turns out the Dual chanel config is 1 and 2 - 3 and 4 or 1,2,3,4 but with the matching sticks obviously in the pairs 1,2 and 3,4!

    As I was running A-Data 1 and Geil2 - A-Data 3 and Geil4 I think the board was trying to run Dual chanel with mismatched sticks! and certainly with the CAS latency prob this was never gonna work.

    I'm gonna put the Geils into 3 and 4 now and see if it's still stable with all 4 Dimm's back in - Fingers crossed.

    I have been through and conquered many problems, sometimes alone and sometimes with the help of others and I will regularly search this forum to see if what limited knowlege I have will be of any use.

    Thanks once again.
