Make sure your not overvolting first thing right off the bat. I forgot to mention the G18 likes to ramp up the cpu volts. As far as seeing all your ram. Did you set your onboard video option in the bios to use the onboard display all the time instead of only when no other gpu is detected? That sounds about what is going on w/the ram.

I'd sell off all 4x1GB sticks and buy some PC-8500 2x2GB sticks so that you can run them at the highest speeds possible on the DDR2 IMC built into your AM3 CPU
Apparently the IMC's for DDR2 built into AMD chips are not capable of handling 4 channels of DDR2-1066 or higher. The most I was ever able to get stable with all 4 ram channels populated was DDR2-1013 at 5-5-5-15-23-2T but when I ran only 2 sticks of ram I was able to get DDR2-1066 and higher stable all day long just a thought and my 2Â¢ on the subject.Edited by N2Gaming - 2/1/11 at 9:43pm
