    Are you sure you have the memory on the right slots? For triple you use the outside slots, not the blue ones. XP32 only supports 3gb of RAM. So it is a waste to run 6GB. You need XP-64 or Vista 64-bit for full support of the 6GB and triple channel.

    System boot see only 4GB RAM (install total is 6GB=3*2GB)

    Slot DDR3_1 not work (white).
    Slot DDR3_3 boot and OK (white).
    Slot DDR3_5 boot and OK (white).

    Maybe solution:

    Do you see the same if you re-arrange the memory, in the same slots I mean just move it around to see if all sticks are indeed working?

    If so and it is always the same you will need to start by removing the CPU to be SURE there are NO Bent pins under it. I have seen this several times, since the memory controller is in the CPU one bent pin can mess up the ram

    So it was a faulty board then eh? Bent pins?

    Either way, nice to hear you now have a working system!

    Only one pin is bent.
    How this possible?

    (That pin not corner . Maybe factory fault)

    Hmm, well if it was done at the factory they would never admit it.

    Anything can bend a pin, something could catch onto it when you are not looking like a cloth or something you may be doing? I have seen TONS of bent pins come back to our shop that were fine when I last saw the board. It happens alot more then you would think, and it does not happen always in a corner

    Did you try at all to bend that back, you likely could have as it does not look to bad. But then again I could not see it very well as those images are not large enough for me to fully see it as close as I would need to

    Did you get a RMA or did you have to buy a new one??
