Question new problems :D


First of all please look below to see my system configuration(perhaps it is something incompatible)
My problem is that when installed in dual channel mode with the BIOS frequency 400MHz set to manual, the two DRAM modules fail in "Microsoft Windows Memory Diagnostic" testing application reporting several errors when writing/reading from the DRAM.
When setting them to 333Mhz or 200Mhz in BIOS the system does not crash in the testing application.
Another problem is in IntelliJ Idea when I click the garbage collect button, the mouse starts to freeze/unfreeze a couple of times until the process of garbage collection is finished. I went to a friend that has Asus A8N SLI motherboard and he doesn't have problems with the mouse in IntelliJ Idea.
Same thing(with the mouse) happends in other programs that do alot of processor/memory/hard disk activity(I don't know the exact component - hardware or software - that generate such behavior)
Please, if you have any idea or thought about this sittuation, tell me because I really am helpless here. I have asked alot of people about this and they don't know what to tell me.

Asus A8N SLI Deluxe
