Well they cannot list EVERY brand of ram, as indeed they say on the site.

I had found that board at first but I dismissed it, as the image clearly shows the slots numbered 1 moving from the processor.

I do NOT think that is particularly important.

I would as I have said, test each stick in in the slots using two at a ime, and the porcedure I outlined.
I would then test with JUST one stick in slot ONE and again I would test all sticks.

I would get rid of that patch - although you have still not said what it is.
I would set all relevant configurations regarding the ram to the default settings - be that AUTO or disabled whatever it is.

I would then try with the specific voltage and settings RATHER than AUTO but NOT to in anyway overdrive the ram - ie OVERCLOCK.


I would STILL refer the matter to Gigabyte and Mushkin.
It is too late of course NOW, but although I do not know of Mushkin, I have a distinct feeling that you may not have experienced the difficulties with Corsair ram for instance.

RE YOUR LAST - that is what I noticed, immediately you said they were NOT numbered from the processor.
WHAT does the manual SAY

Cheers.

Sorry we cannot make more progress.
I have a Gigabyte board on this computer running windows 7 Professional
They are quite good with their replies, average reply time is about three days.

I have a distinct feeling they will reply that it is the ram, but I would also see what if any reply you get from Mushkin.

NOT the same RAM exactly but you may find this interesting
