Just to let you know: the two 4GB sticks are stable even under max-stress BurnTest. Furthermore, because I was curious, I shoved my original two 2GB sticks in the other slots and tested again. Guess...

Yeah, it looks like the board to me. Money definitely is an issue, unfortunately; I do intend to replace the mobo, but I can't really afford to at the moment. I had actually bought one on eBay but...

I've tried contacting ASUS support, but they're unresponsive (I understand their customer support is notoriously awful, so I'm not hugely surprised by this). On the other hand, I could just order a...

One other suggestion: would running two 4GB sticks instead of four 2GB sticks be more likely to work? The 4GB sticks aren't listed on the compatibility list for my mobo, but would I be correct in...

OK, pretty certain it's an issue with the mobo right enough. BurnTest throws up an instability warning after a few runs on Maximum, advising I "lower my overclock". I'm taking that to mean that the...

Right. BIOS updated to latest. PSU apparently fine. Memtest86+ stopped spitting out errors. I've had more BSODs nonetheless.

I actually thought I might have sorted it when I discovered some dodgy...

OK, I'll give that a go as well then. For the time being, I'm running 20 passes on each stick, starting with the new ones (since the problem only appeared after I installed them).

There are BIOS updates available, but they just fix issues I haven't been having and don't have reason to care about. Also, it's not actually that board, it's the SI version...

The trouble is, this motherboard is garbage. I can't try fiddling with voltages or anything like that. So if it can't handle 2GB in 4 slots, I'm buggered.

The compatibility list claims the mobo...

All individual sticks seem to check out OK in each slot, but...

1 stick: 0 errors
2 sticks: 0 errors
4 sticks: errors on test 6

Would this suggest a PSU problem? Or perhaps mobo failing to...

Well, I have Memtest on a bootable USB drive if that's preferable to Prime95. Actually, I think I uninstalled Prime95, not that reinstallation is difficult or anything. Might I as well just use...

Hardware about a year old, except for relatively recent RAM addition - but Memtest checks out with 0 errors.
