Okay, I currently have 4 gigs of ram installed (2x2) and I went and bought two more 2 gig sticks for a total of 8 gigs. Well, windows doesn't go to the login screen and I've tried different combinations with the sticks, and also no sticks are dead.
All sticks are DDR2 800 - 6400.
I've messed with the DDR2 voltage, NB voltage, and even SB voltage, and to no avail. Perhaps chipset voltage?
Any suggestions, PLEASE, haha.
Also, some specs on my computer:
Vista Ultimate 64 bit
850 watt psu
Fatal1ty Professional Titanium Series
The new ram is not on the QVL, but that might not matter. The QVL might be more advertising and just ones that have been checked before, and there might be a BUNCH of different types of ram that work but aren't on the QVL.
As for the lowering the mhz to 667, i'd rather keep it at 800, There's probably some way to get all 8 to work fine.
It works! I updated the bios (didn't know if it was that seeing as I just updated the bios earlier in October maybe because I had just got the computer, but there is a new bios update and VOILA!). May this help people in the future! Adios! =)
