Recently I built a computer using a ECS P35T-A LGA 775 Intel P35 motherboard and corsair XMS2 5-5-5-12 ddr800 6400 ram.
I was having some instability issues in windows, so I assumed it was the ram. Running memtest instantly causes the screens to blank and the computer to stall. Next in the BIOS I set my computer to do a long post to check the ram.
I put in each one of the sticks to all four slots on the motherboard with no issues, everything ran well including memtest. However, when I put the ram in dual channel mode in slots 1, 3 or 2, 4 the problems began again.
Before I buy another motherboard and RMA this one I'm just wondering if anyone can tell me for sure that its my motherboard thats defective and not some strange ram issue that I dont know of.
