Yeah, I've seen that deal. It should work imo.
However, I never have been a fan of populating all four slots.. I'd have preferred a 2x2GB kit. But that's just an aside.
Back to the problem at hand... By any random chance, do yuo have any other RAM laying around? If so, just try it for giggles (two sticks Patrios, two sticks whatever else). I want to know whether the memory controller might be shot.
I had a board that ate my RAM... it would work fine for a while, and then a RAM stick would fail. Took me three RMA's of RAM before I found out it was the mobo

Good question, but irrelevant here. His system doesn't even POST with four sticks.
