What ever combination of ram you have installed lets take a look at Resource Monitor and see what Windows 7 sees ram to be. My understanding is Windows 7 get these reading from the motherboard.

See what happens. Just a suggestion.

Also. On Monday call Crucial tech support and tell them your problems. You can probably get an RMA from them for the 4GB sticks and see if that helps, but I believe the problem is the board dimm slots.
alright ill rma the ram sticks on monday

Well Windows 7 is seeing a little over 12 gigs. Your hardware is low but that depends on what hardware you have. If you can RMA the ram go for it. Don't forget matched ram because they are test together to make sure they work nicely with each other.
NOTE! I do not like ImageShack because of all the extras is download. Some sort of screaming music now I have to run scans for infections.
Use the little paper clip at the top of you post to upload your things.

i was trying to avoid rma'ing but i guess thats the only solution? i just think it's weird that i only get memtest errors when they're in dual channel but individually no errors..... wouldnt that mean its more of a motherboard issue?

That's what it seems to me. We'll see when you get the sticks back from RMA. When you contact MSI, if that happens, they will tell you the ram is not on their QVL list, and that is the problem. It is not the problem. Look up the QVL list for the memory for that board.

It's a toss up. The motherboard is telling Windows 7 the correct information. I'm thinking the motherboard just doesn't really know what to do with that ram and the way the settings are. Things like this are more a trial and error method.
