First few sticks I tested under the auto settings (1,333 MHz 9-9-9-24 ) also threw errors.
I think prathik7's suggestions make sense. Just difficult to do. My working box uses DDR3 memory...but its 6 slots that support up to 24gb. Not sure what it would do with an 8 GB stick. But I guess I could test the memory in the other box first...and then move it to my new box to see if that works.
