    Well first please test one from each set by themselves so you can check the SPD info I mentioned. If one kit is new 2.0v and one is old 2.2V they wont work together at all.

    If they are all 2.2V then yes you should be able to boot with all 4 sticks once you set ram voltage to 2.2V, MCH to 1.24, and tRD to 7-8 depending on speeds.

    If they are all 2.2V then I can help you with full settings to try and get them working, if so please get a template from my signature and give me your current full settings and I will advise back.

    Sorry about the delay on the verdict... You are the Best! Thanks for the Great Advice. I had to pull a moderate OC to get it stable (CPU is not powerful enough to run W7 on full OC settings) but the memory is giving me performance scores better than a C2D 3.0G on a N-Force Board with 2GB of the same ram. Next step is an E8400, a new pci-ex sound card, and SSD.

    Update!!!

    I have given up hope for the Ballistix and have replaced them with G.skill 4GB kit (F2-6400CL5D-4GBPQ) and an E8400. Is there any pre-configured bios profiles for this setup?

    Did you at least try the Crucial with the 8400?

    What speed do you want to run your 8400 at and I will give you some settings to try, but yes you can probably search by that model name and find a few thread with people using them and a 8400

    I have not tried the 8400 with the the crucial. I had a BSOD, and had to remove 2 sticks of it to get my rig to post. the crucial will go in my Linux box on a P5K-E mobo. I am guessing a mild OC 3.2 - 3.4 GHz will be fine. The E8400 is a big jump in performance over the E6400 alone.

    Another question, will i need to change my bios? I have read some other posts where they have OC'd their E8400 to 3.6GHz or better but it looks like they changed their clock multiplier. Something that is locked in my current bios.

    Well you may or may not need to update your BIOS, but it is suggested. I doubt you "Have" to though, as this board was made after 8400 was out so I am sure it is fully supported in all the BIOSes made.

    Your current BIOS should enable the CPU multi and the .5 multi's as well (Below max multi of course). Did you load optimized defaults and save/apply/reboot after you installed the new CPU? If not do that and go directly BACK to the BIOS and then set your SATA/Disk settings again and then check this CPU multi issue ?

    If you have done that, or not, you must also enable CPU host control before you can change the multi/fsb
