What exactly do you need to know?
I'm running 3 sticks of Corsair XMS3, pretty mainstream ram, nothing high end at 1600mhz / 1.64V, 6 sticks at 1.64 should be no problem. (put the 3 sticks in, booted without hassle, had bios version f4 when I first booted it, I did notice that the board/bios put the ram on 1000mhz though)
Just did some backtracking, to see what your problem is/was. Uhm, Gigabyte released another bios version recently (f6) with added memory compatibility, so you could try upgrading the bios. Borrow or steal some ram somewhere so you can boot Qflash and flash the thing?
Oh and btw, did you put the ram in the white slots? I read it doesn't POST when you don't put it in the white ones.Edited by koji - 3/16/10 at 9:06am
