Default Problems with ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe

Two things.
First The raid setup wouldn't let me make the striped array bootable the option was grayed out.
Second The board is the pickiest board I've ever worked with.
I just bought two more 512 mem sticks that were listed in the motherboard book and they still wont work right. I can put them both in the B Slots but cant do Dual channel mem and cant put them in the A slots. I now have 3 sets of 512 chips and am getting tired of fighting with this piece. Any suggestions other than a stick of dynamite. Thanks

Oh and to top it off one of the Video cards just died after about one hour of use. OK i'm done.

I'm thinking that even though the book says that the Kingston ram i bought is compatible, that maybe it need to be corsair or something more expansive. Although I've never ran into such a problem before. Thanks for looking into it.
