    Yes it'll run fine with 3, google flex mode memory to read about this feature.

    After extensive testing, it appears that the 8GB config passes all tests I can find (including Prime95 for 36Hrs+) except memtest - which fails every time.

    The OCZ forum says that memtest "can have chipset issues". Anyone have any knowledge on the subject re this board (P35-DS3P rev2.1)

    Thanks,
    Alan

    I have seen issues yes with memset and chipsets but not P35 and the newest version, Do you have version 2.01? If you do and it fails then it is bad ram for sure.

    There is another memtest you could run to verify that is correct >>>
    MemTest: RAM reliability tester for Windows

    Please read the FAQ

    but memset tests memory ONLY, other tests do not put full stress or proper tests on the ram fully and by itself

    It passed the test (memtest under xp).
    8GB still fails memtest86+ every time and it looks very much like this is an inability to run 8GB of ram.

    I've tried all the ram singly and in various 4GB combinations and it passes memtest86+ ok. It passes using 2x2 plus 2x1 GB of the same spec memory (total 6GB).

    The only test that fails is memtest86+ and only when there is 8GB of memory on board. This happens every time and all other tests (including memtest) pass every time.

    6 is enough, so I'll have to go with that I think - running out of time.

    Many thanks for the help to everyone who has offered some advice - much appreciated.
