I really don't know, But I'm going to do what ncsa told me, change the combination of ram!

Your modules were manufactured at different times, as mentioned before it is the SPD description that has changed, the actual timings have not.

Yes they are rated at CAS 1.5 DDR400 but where these modules excel is at CAS2.5 DDR600+ for dual operation. The fact that you are only getting DDR420 seems to me to be a timing issue which can be manually adjusted within the BIOS.

Having said that, it is also possible that the new modules are using a different Week of TCCD which may also affect their inter operation.

Hence finding out if all modules are good individually and then pairing them up again. Another angle I would try is to run them as spilt pairs..

Yes a good point.. any change of timings and module swap should be checked in Memtest to make sure at least the memory is good.

Testing at Stock values is a must otherwise there is no basis from which to work.

To manually change the timings you will need to go into the Guru .. work through the manual Section 3-1 and esp 3-4, this is where you will gain control of the system and memory timings.

Use version 1.65 .. the most recent.

Initially I would run a full loop or two of the entire test, then run tests 5, 6, 8 for 5-10 each... this takes time but you do need to be sure that the modules are OK.
