No clue what it is, unless its a motherboard thing, because I tried it all, its fine with 3 in but 4 no.. unless I put the new ram in where the two corsairs were then the corsairs in the other two.. if that makes sense? very odd...

I guess I should try return it and get the same ram I have then.

I've now got two more Corsairs, which on the site I bought them from had same details as my current but are actually different.. I guess its a mistake on the stores behalf..

Both same type and speed, but the timing, version and voltage of the new ones is different to my old ones.

I think its an issue with my board, it doesn't like 4 gigs in on dual channel unless I put the speed down to 667 in bios and change the voltage..

Any tips? is this the only way to get all 4 to work in dual channel on 800mhz?
I only learnt to do the above from a site but don't know if its right or what else I can do? Or if its just because the ram is different (Slightly)..

Help appreiciated so I can return ram soon if needed!

Just a guess but are 2 double sided, and the others single sided (the actual memory chips that is). That would cause a lot of fuss for a finnicky mobo.
