If you didn't manually change all four timings this could be the problem. I believe this is what your BIOS looks like (correct me if not):
The four timings 3, 8T, 4T, and 4T is what it should look like if you changed the timings to the SPD manually. Only change those four timings and set the "Memclock index value" to 200MHz. Double check that you don't have the CPU overclocked. If this doesn't work something else might be the problem or your new RAM just isn't working with the old RAM very good (sometimes different brands don't play nice together). It's 1:47AM where I live so I'm going to bed. I'll try to check back tomorrow.Edited by Ben the OCer - 10/26/08 at 10:47pm
