Corsair 4GB Prob with ASUS (Another one)

Hi all, 1st post.

 

I recently purchased a new PC for my gaming experience.

 

ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe MOBO

2 GB of Corsair CMX1024-3200C2PT, XMS3200, 1024 MB, 400MHZ (2 Sticks)

 

After installing all components I fired it up for the first time and......BEEP BEEEP !! I hated hearing that on my new PC. So I learn it's a Ram issue based on the number of beeps. I read the manual about installing Ram Sticks and thought I had it right. I reinstalled the two sticks into the first two slots (A) or the Black and Blue slots.....re-boot and poof! It worked.

 

I was wondering how come it worked when the sticks were in the wrong spots? Maybe I'm wrong? WHo knows, but I installed my XP and games and was loving my gaming experience within an hour.

 

FOUR WEEKS LATER............

 

I call Tiiigerdirect and I tell them I want another 2 GB of ram and ask for the SAME exact kind from my last order. THey charge me 200 bucks and they arrive today.

 

I have placed all four sticks in diff configurations and I get the BEEEEEEEEEEEP Ram error. So I come here and read up and find that the "revision" may be the problem. Here is the 'fine print' on my 4 sticks.

 

2 Sticks say: V1.2 0623076-1

2 New Sticks say: V1.6 0618008-3

 

So am I screwed? Do I have to send these back since they are different versions (1.2 & 1.6)? And Am I even installing these things correctly? It seems the first two sticks should be in the A1 and B1 slots....according to manual.

 

Please help & Yes, I've read up a lot and can't find the answer other than "Different Versions won't work"...that sucks.

 

Much appreciated!!!

Thanks.

 

I mailed the ram back today and they are giving me a full refund :D:

 

Now that I have you reading, can you tell me what I should set my BIOS to get the most out of my 2GB of ram?

 

Thanks so much, your knowledge on this stuff is amazing.
