    Matched pair? Remove one of the 512 sticks. Make sure you remove slot 2 if they are numbered 1 and 2 or slot 1's if they are numbered 0 and 1. Try one stick at a time and see if your reboots or 'stop errors' stop. There are a number of RAM testing software out there but some are confusing and time consuming to run.

    Well i talked to a guy at Kingston and he told me that my MB wasnt supported by them and that i should check and upgrade my bios , i looked at the most recent updates for my bios and it said that there was an upgrade for clocking DDR400 ram , which seemed to be the problem according to the rep at kingston , so we can only pray now to see what happens in the near future , ill let ya know if it crashes on me unexpectedly

    thank you
