    Default Memory conflict?

    I own a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3 with 2 sticks of 1 gig each CORSAIR CL5 800mhz DDR2... i just bought a new G.SKILL 4096MB (2048MBX2) DDR2 800 CL4-4-4-12 GBPK and hoped they will all live together in harmony :) . after couple of hours of Memtest86+ i got some errors. I took my old ram out and checked for a night with memtest - all good. took the new ones out and checked the old ones for a night - all good, so I'm guessing there's isn't much i can do other then taking my old CORSAIR out and buy the same G.skill in the future but i thought i'll ask any there a way to solve such a thing? Maybe something in the BOIS is not configured right?
    (any way i think i'll leave all the 6 gigs in until the first BSOD)

    You cannot mix brands for sure, often not even the same brand bought at different times. Sure you can get them to work "Maybe" but the performance will be terrible

    You will eventually corrupt your disk if you keep using both. So you should settle for the 2x2 g.skills and sell the others and either use 4Gb or get some similar G.Skill 2x1's and try to tweak them to work together.

    But, if you would like some help trying to get those to work poorly together I can give you some BIOS settings to try to pass memtest86+. Give me your settings you are using now and I will advise back, but again I DO suggest against this >>>>

    This is Just a template I use to ask people their settings, pay no attention to the numbers in it, replace with yours
