Sorry no luck. I tried some geil golden dragon which someone who reviewed my motherboard on newegg.com also used and his worked. The only other option is the Motherboard is DOA I guess?? man this makes me mad, it already cost me 12 bucks to send the old ram back to newegg the Mboard will be a fortune.
(On a side note about Kingston not listing my Mboard on their site, I went to all of the websites for the ram that Albatrons site itself suggested I use and apparently my Mboard doesn't exist! none of the sites had it listed on their memory configurator. Just great!)
