I have the ASUS P4P800-E DELUXE.<br />
<br />
The Patriot PDC1G3200+XBLK (2 x 512MB) x 2 with 4 memory modules is not compatible with the P3P800-E DELUXE. It will only accept 2 x 512MB modules, not 4. <br />
My P4P800 will not even accept 2 x 512MB memory modules. This is ****ed up. I'm pissed.<br />
<br />
<br />
Does anyone want to purchase some Patriot low-latency memory that is BRAND NEW?????? 2-2-2-5

When it comes to DDR, I tried the Patriot once and they didn't work, so I went back with Corsair an OCZ. <br />
<br />
And BTW, I'm having a problem with my SD (flash memory) 2GB card, the damn thing works in my camera but in the card reader it doesn't....I'm pi$$ed too because now I have to waste time and money in returning it and stick to what I've always used before: Sandisk.

You need to use your original ram you used before you changed to Patriot.<br />
Go into bios and preset laxed settings so the Patriots when installed will boot.<br />
Also check voltages prior to reinstalling your stix. Give it a shot.<br />
First try "auto", then try custom. gl

P4 3.2 - 4GHZ Prescott<br>
Asus P4P800-E Deluxe FSB 1000Mhz<br>
Patriot DDR400 SPD 2-2-2-5; OCed @ 500Mhz 3-4-4-8<br>
GeForce 7800GS @ 490Mhz<br><br>
The RAM is rated for 2-2-2-5 @ PC3200; 3-4-4-8 @ PC4200<br><br>
I can boot the PC with all 4 modules, but I memtest shows errors. My motherboard does not support 4 memory modules. That's why I'm pissed.<br>
Furthermore, my ASUS P4P800 does not support 2 x 512MB modules. I didn't try just one.<br>
I had no clue this Patriot memory was so incompatible.<br>
I'm calling Asus Monday

That must be a rubbish mobo if it doesn't support 2 or 4 sticks of RAM. So you can only have one stick of RAM <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused"> I dont get you.

::Confused::, Guessing that the mobo doesn't like the ram, though you have some awesome overclocking ram there. I have different brand name but same Samsung TCCD chips underneath the heatspreaders.<br><br>
Try using just one stick at a time, test them all. It could be the memory itself thats defective. Or up the latencies, if I remember correctly Intel's memory controllers don't like low latencies.

It's pretty conclusive my motherboard doesn't like the Patriot memory with 4 modules installed. Of course that Asus QVL doesn't have Patriot on the list. I have 4 Crucial modules I use in my server I tested and they were error free... although, they were 256MB x 4. I don't think that has a bearing on the issue here.<br>
Maybe the problem is that each Patriot module has 2 banks (double-sided) and the MB can't handle 8? Just a thought.<br>
I'll try a BIOS flash, although I think I have the latest.<br><br>
OCZedd, I think you misunderstood me... I have the Asus P4P800 (server) and the P4P800-E Deluxe.
