    Default Memtest86+ v2.11...P35-DS4...E8400...Trust these results???

    Hello all...This is my first attempt at overclocking and any help would be greatly appreciated!!! I have been testing various memory with Memtest86+ v2.11 so I could begin overclocking but I'm not sure I can trust the results I'm getting!

    So far I've tested the following:

    Two sets:
    Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model BL2KIT12864AA1065 - Retail
    No errors either set.

    Two sets:
    G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel ... - Retail
    First set - no errors ; Second set - errors on test #5 for each stick.

    One set:
    CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X2048-6400C4 - Retail
    No errors.

    I have tested each individual stick of memory in each of the 4 DIMM slots, with the proper voltages set manually in the BIOS. Without exception Memtest86+ reads the memory in slots 1 and 2 as DDR2 and the memory in slots 3 and 4 as DDR3! This doesn't seem normal but I'm new to this! I will RMA the G. Skill memory if it is truly bad but I'm still concerned about the DDR2/DDR3 anomaly! Is my motherboard defective as well??? Please help!

    System Specs
    GA-P35-DS4 Rev 2.0, BIOS F13, E8400, Noctua NH-U12P, WD Raptor 150GB, G'byte Odin GT 800W, Asus 8800GT, Vista Ultimate x64 SP1

    Memtest calling the RAM DDR3 is a bug, if it were DDR3 you wouldn't be able to even insert in the DIMM slots. Don't worry about that, there are so many different motherboards that metest can't tell correctly what RAM you're using on every single board.

    I would check the G.Skill in Windows with Prime 95 as well, if you also get errors there then RMA it.

    From what you've told us there's no indication of any problem whatsoever with your motherboard!
