8gb RAM friendly motherboard

Good Afternoon Guys,

I require some advise, Im in the process of building a new machine

It will have the following

1 x 250gb hdd, 2 x500gb hdd
pci usb hub, pci wifi
xfx geforce 9500gt 1gb graphics
8 gb RAM.
Q8400 2.66ghz Quad core proc

Ive so far had 2 boards and 3 types of RAM, none of which I can get to work with 8gb RAM.

Currently I have an ASUs P5Q SE2 mobo, and from their QVL 4 x 2gb Kingston RAM (which only works if I use 1 module)

Im slowly starting to pull my hair out, can anyone advise how to get the 4 modules to work, or recommend a compatible mobo and ram combo.

Ill ask about OC part of it once I can get something that works

Yours hopefully
