Default RAM and lock ups

Okay a couple problems with me new pc.

1) I bought a dual-channel set of Corsair XMS2 DDRs-800 RAM, 2x1GB. During the POST I see it displayed on the screen as Single Channel mode... Wondering why that is. I also can't find a place to change the timings/voltage of my RAM. Corsair rates it as 5-5-5-12 but the bios see's 5-5-5-18. I'm running a P5B-E mobo

2) Random lockups. All of the sudden the keyboard and mouse will go dead, the monitor will be frozen. But I get no error messages no blue screens no nothing. Also the fans and heatsink fan are all still howling away, the disc drive still opens and closes as well.

I have no answers for you. Iv looked around and it seems there has been several people have issues with ram on this particular mobo.
I would suggest poking around the Asus forum looking for an answer or even posting there.
