TWIN2x2048-6400 G and Striker Extreme

Hi, I built a computer recently and I got a striker extreme motherboard and TWIN2x2048-6400 G Corsair ram (it's 2x1GB sticks). The first sticks I got, one stick would work and then stop working, so I installed windows vista with only one stick in and then sent them back to be replaced thinking that the stick was broken (after messing with ram timings/voltages for a long time). So I got the new sticks in today and, lo and behold, they worked! Well for awhile. After a little time, the games started to lock up. So I got scared and ran a memtest (i guess one comes on the vista DVD) and to my shock I got the same "hardware has problems, please contact manufacturer" and now my computer wont even make it past the post. Any help or ideas would be great! Thanks.

 

for timings/voltages i put:

 

5,5,5,12 2T and 5,5,5,15 2T and I changed the voltage to 1.85V and 1.90V

As an update, I tried using single sticks of RAM and one of them wouldnt boot at all, again. I don't understand how I got a broken stick of ram in two seperate packages. That doesn't really make sense. I am thinking of just heading to CompUSA today after work and purchasing the TWIN2X2048-8500C5D and refunding my other sticks from the retailer I originally bought them from. That takes time, though and I built this computer 3 weeks ago and it still doesn't work. Would this be a good purchase? And can you list recommended settings? I am running

 

I have heard that the Striker motherboards have a problem in controlling the voltages, could it be that the motherboard is just frying the RAM?

 

Also, any info on my previous reply would be wonderful too.

Please make sure that you have the latest Bios version and then load setup/optimized defaults and set the Dim Voltage to 2.0 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.
