There seems to be potent misinformation floating freely... This is not an issue. The issue 9/10 times is RAM incompatibility with motherboards, incorrect timing/voltage, and people pushing their clocks they assume to be stable when they aren't.

Running with four DIMM's should be no problem, whether is's Heka, Rana, Deneb.. the IMC's are fine.

Some people find they may have a weak IMC, and thus higher clocks are not as attainable as others.

I currently have 4 X 2gb in my system and I had to downclock the speeds of the ram to get over seize ups and some other unflattering effects from all those DIMMS.

More ram is always good to have, for sure, just make sure with Deneb, you say increase ram amount while maintaining only 2 sticks to avoid any plug and play issues.

It is likely you haven't setup your RAM correctly, timings, voltage, combination of the three, etc; or are trying to push your RAM or other clocks too far. Beyond that the last issue would be incompatibility with your motherboard.

There is nothing wrong with running four DIMM's. This is a common misconception which was grabbed on by people who weren't overclocking their systems be cause people who were clocking their's higher (including CPU/NB, RAM, and CPU all simultaneously) were found reporting that some overclocks were unattainable with four DIMM slots populated due to over-stressing the memory controller.

Even mild clocks should never be a problem. I have successfully had 4x2GB DIMM's of DDR3 1600 @ 1600 @ 7-6-6-21-27 running on a C2 720BE for over a year before I sold a kit to purchase other components.

I mentioned it would give him problems but in terms of work to do. I totally agree with the misinformation going around.
Something else that involves this subject. What I don't quit understand is why modern MOBOs don't recognize RAM timings and clocks according to their stock specifications. We always have to touch the setup to get them running as fast as stock, which for 'non-advanced' users is not something they do comfortably.

Some kits have included tables of SPD data and some don't; some motherboards read them according to profiles (like Intel and XMP) and some don't. Not to mention that the kits you buy are usually defaulting to 1066/1333. My OCZ kit has 533 SPD data by default but runs at 800Mhz (1600) and my GSkill kit (1600) defaults to 667 (1333) in SPD data.

Use CPU-Z to see what your memory defaults to on the memory tab.
