    When it reboots and doesn't save the main timings, what timings does it show for them?
    GA-P35C-DS3R Rev2.0 F11 bios, E8200 (@3.0Ghz), OCZ DDR3 PC3-10666 Reaper 4GB (@1200Mhz), Xonar D1, 8800GTS 512, Corsair HX520 (Single 12volt line, Max 40A), WDC 3200aaks/5000aaks in AHCI mode, Vista 64 Premium.

    6-6-6-18. but in the next column it says 5-5-5-15 but it is on "auto" not "manual"
    also in the memprogram it says that the timings is 6-6-6-18
    voltage shows +0.2

    Well 6-6-6-18 is very relaxed for a 1GB module, especially at 2.0volts. have you set Performance Enhance to standard????? and left the advanced memory timings on Auto?

    This ram just doesn't seem to be performing very well at all.

    Does it say it's running at 800Mhz?

    It's a 2gb module.
    performance enchaned is standard. memory timings is auto.
    it is running at 800mhz

    Well with the settings I gave you ie Performance Enhance to standard and 2.0volts for ddr2 and with everything else at Auto, ie the main timings at 6-6-6-18, those modules should work.

    I take it you are putting the second module into the correct bank?

    Ocz have updated their Gold Range, but i assume it's PC2-6400 2x2GB (4gb) kit you have?

    The second module I put in the other yellow socket. So both sticks are in yellow sockets, and the red onesd are empty.

    I have the 2*2gb kit yes.

    I've runned 18 passes on the other stick now without errors. Thats with 6-6-6-18 and the voltage at +0.2

    Have you tried testing the second stick on its's OWN too?

    This is still pointing towards poor memory - its a shame you haven't got anything else you can try.

    You could if you wanted to, after testing the second stick, just use one Stick and try install windows.
    Knowing that the stick you have now tested seems to be ok at those relaxed timings, it would give you the oportunity to install windows and then be able to fully check all other aspects of your board and hardware.

    You could then perhaps exchange the Ram after fully making sure everything else is ok. Just an idea.

    I now tested the computer with 2*1 gb sticks of ram from another computer.
    It is now using dual channel and I was able to boot the computer without any problems.

    Not getting any problems at all now.
    So then it is probably something wrong with my ram despite that they run completely fine when I only use one of them at a time?

    I think probably so.

    It is true that running 2x2gb modules can cause more problems than just running one module.
    Some boards are fine with 2x2Gb brands from the outset and some require some tweaking; Mainly:-

    1) tRFC = 56
    2) Performance Enhance = Standard
    3) DDR2 Voltage = 2.0volts.

    Those 3 items can massively enhance stability when more than 2GB (total) is installed on your board.

    You may NOT have changed tRFC (as i know your finding you way around the bios), but even so, if it weren't changed with two fussy sticks installed you might get memtest errors. However, your system doesn't even get that far with two sticks of those OCZ Gold modules installed.

    Other things you could have tried and I've mentioned this, is to drop the memory multiplier so that your Ram runs at 667Mhz - so as to underclock the ram.

    I just think whilst you've now got it running either with one stick of the OCZ Gold or two modules that you've borrowed that you try and install windows, just so you can check the board out properly.

    Your Ocz Ram may have been damaged in handling, or it's just a poor example of that product line, which would normally be ok. The Gold series is towards the value side of things.
    The Platinum series or even the Nvidia SLI series are ok.

    Not planning on installing windows at first.
    Any test there that I can't do in OSX?
    Bought this mobo because there is a beautiful guide to install macosx on this board.
