Default Version Conflict or Bad Memory????

Hi, I currently have Corsair 2x512mb (CMX512-3200XL) version 1.1. I purchased from another GB of identical ram to make sure I was safe with a compatible ram upgrade. I have a P4-C800E Deluxe mobo with a 3.4Ghz Pentium 4 extreme edition cpu. When I installed the additional 2x512 3200XL the computer would start up windows, then crashes immediately. I also ran MemTest86 and got a ton of errors during Test #3.

I noticed that the new 2x512 I got from newegg were version 1.2. I already had 2x512 but it was version 1.1. Are the different versions imcompatible or are the new 2x512 I purchased just defective? In other words, should I return the sticks to newegg or just get them replaced?

Test ONE stick at a time, not all 4 at a time. They're not rated @ 2-2-2-5-1T for more than 2 sticks. Try 3-3-3-8-2T w/ 4 sticks.

Diff between v1.1 and v1.2 is the PCB.
No, I don't work for Corsair need to flow like a river...

How do I change the latency timings? I don't see anything for that in BIOS.

The memory settings will be under advanced chipset and you need to set the memory voltage to 2.75 Volts for 2 modules and 2.85 Volts for four modules.
