This is all I can find on the Corsair site, it says the memory you have will work, but it doesn't state that it will accept 4 of them at once, but it doesn't say it won't either

so i did a BIOS update and guess what it booted up fine. only problem now is the fact that the system just lags and hangs now. which is just great. im like 5 seconds away from putting a sledge hammer to it.
so whats wrong now?

oh and should i leave the voltage settings on auto or should i put them at 1.9?

If it were mine I would set it to 1.9 instead of auto, at least to see if that solves the issue.

I have been sitting here racking my brain for a resolution and the only thing that pops into my head is to try removing your Soundblaster card and of course uninstall the drivers for it just to see if that helps.

I'm assuming you are having the trouble with the system listed in your Sig.

I had a similar problem with my Crosshair System.

It is a limitation of the nforce 590 chipset and having all four memory slots populated with 800Mhz memory.

The recommendation is to either run all 4 sticks at 667Mhz and bump the voltage up to 2.0Vlts - 2.1Vlts or run 2 sticks at 800Mhz.

*sigh*
I just don't know what to do anymore. this computer has drained me completely..emotionally and financially. all it does it not work and give me loads of problems.
heres how it breaks down:
original cost of system: $846 in October of 2006
addtional parts:
2nd cd rw drive: $50
graphics card: $130 (to make it work with vista)
1st new hard drive $100
raptor drive:$279
3 power supplies (yes its gone through 2 power supplies its now on its 3rd) $250 between all 3
+labor to have power supplies looked at and new ones installed: $100
bought 2 new sets of memory $70
bought blu-ray drive $100 (to replace broken cdrw drive)
bought wireless G card $50
bought wireless N card $80 (to replace G card)
new motherboard (asus was not the original one) $300
+cost to have THAT installed $50
bought windows vista for it: $239
new CPU fan: $60
for a grand sum total of: $2704
this is how much keeping up techology costs. and when it breaks..well your even more *beep*.
whats even more funny about allof this is that fact i spent all this money and what does it do for me? NOTHING! i can't even enjoy this awesome computer because all it does is error,break down and mess up.
worthless piles of sh*t they are.
