Question Asus A8N-SLI Premium and Corsair VS2GBKIT400C3 = No Dual Channel???

Hi everyone,

I'm just moving from my "old" AMD64 754 to a new AMD64 939 machine.

So, those are my specs:

PSU 430 watts
Asus A8N-SLI Premium with BIOS 1011.1
Corsair VS2GBKIT400C3 PC3200 2048MB
AMD A64 3000+ 939 Venice
e-VGA 7800GT
2 Sata Maxtor HDDs
Audigy 2 ZS

Everything is working fine, but I just can't set this board to work with those Corsair memos using Dual Channel. If I put any of the sticks on slots A1 or A2 I get memory errors from the BIOS and my PC don't even POST. Asus mobo reports that the RAM tests failed.

If I put any of the sticks to B1 or B2 slots them everything goes fine. I put those sticks on B1 and B2 sticks and now I've my 2 gigs running fine, but of course without Dual Channel, only Single Channel.

For those that can think about a defective mobo, I had a A8N-SLI and returned it last week because of this problem, them I get this new A8N-SLI Premium, and the same problem happens again :(

There is any way or configuration that I can do within BIOS to make those rams to run at Dual Channel configuration or really exists a compatibility problem between those sticks and those Asus mobos?

Angelo Braga.
