    I do see 50% (Well out of 8, but still) gave bad or DOA reviews for this memory at newegg, so you may have a bad set/sets as well >>>
    Newegg.com - CORSAIR XMS2 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

    Try this and see if you get anywhere >>>

    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ 0.1V << Try first, then try +0.2 (after you set this, reboot and check in PC health section and see what these settings are actually giving you as it may be off more then a little, so best to check)

    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ 0.1V
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ 0.1V
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control 0.2V << Try .25 or .3, and then try nothing extra as well
    Corsair is usually right though I'm not sure but people usually are more willing to speak out when something it's bad when it's good, which I assume it's the majority.

    Ya, reviews always have to be taken with a grain of salt, especially at newegg. At least now you can actually tell in the review if the user even bought the product from them.

    So did you get anywhere? Have you ran Memtest86+ at stock one by one on these sticks to be sure they are both in working order? >>

    Tried those setting with both one stick two sticks of RAM in. As soon as you save an exit the BIOS beeps 3 times and resets back to how it was.
    Not able to run mem test yet. Trying to get my head around making a bootable USB drive for it.

    I posted a guide on how to make a bootable USB Stick here >>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/

    Follow the directions exactly, do not copy additional files onto the USB that you think may be missing from the process as they are not and will cause it to not work. Just follow the steps, then copy only the USB Memtest file onto the USB and you should then be good to go.

    What exact settings are you setting that fail to boot and give you the three beeps and revert to default?

    Used the ones in the post directly above my last one, printed it out and put it in.

    Just trying to make a USB version of memtest to check the RAM out as advised.
    Made the drive bootable, now I just need to put memtest on, correct?

    Yes the guide is for flashing, but the creation of a Bootable USB Stick is the same. Just add your Memtest USB File instead of the BIOS file is all.

    Please run 5-10 full passes, and it is best actually to test one stick at a time if you are unsure if either are good. That way if you have errors you will know which is causing errors.

    Ran 5 scans, showing zero errors at all.
    Most odd.

    OK, sounds good.

    Sorry but this is a older topic, can you please give us your full issue again now and what settings you are using/trying to use

    Just want to be sure, since you just jumped back and didn't say to much
