Please make sure that you have the latest Bios version and then load setup/optimized defaults and set the Dim Voltage to 2.1 volts (+.2 Volts W/Giga-Byte) and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, or if you have Value Select "BY SPD" and then test the module/'s one at a time with http://www.memtest.org! If you still get errors, please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it! However, if you get errors with both modules that would suggest some other problem and I would test them in another system or MB to be sure. In addition, with some MB's (Mostly ASUS) you have to disable legacy USB in the bios when running any memory test.

Ok, I will try all these suggestions - before I do let me just say holy cow ram guy, you have got to be one of the most helpful people on the internet, i can see all these problems you are solving, I hope corsair pays you well :D:

 

 

"BY SPD" I do not see this written anywhere on my ram packaging or ram...

 

I ran memtest86+ 1.70 for eight hours last night and no errors were reported, so this is a good sign so far. I will reply again after I test your suggestion

But does P5k SE support the TWIN2X2048-6400 and TWIN2X2048-6400C4 memory sets?

Am I going to have any issues with this combination?

 

You will be fine with the recommended settings of 4-4-4-12 @ 2.1V. The DRAM is warranted for life. Keep in mind that these settings are for a 2 X 1024 DRAM kit. Also, keep in mind that adding two more sticks down the road is fraught with issues, so if you intend on migrating to a 64bit OS (VISTA 64) etc. down the road, then you would be far better off purchasing 2048MB sticks now and using a two DRAM slot population than attempting to find stability with either a four DRAM slot population or possible mixing and matching different versions of DRAM down the road.
