I'm posting about a very annoying problem with my RAM. Here's the situation:
I had 2x1Gb Team Xtreem Dark DDR2 1066MHz modules and I bought another pair of the same to upgrade. The thing is that once I install the second pair, the pc either won't boot or it won't complete the memory benchmark in Sandra (might also give random BSODs).
I run 3 passes of standard memtest86 on my old pair alone and it passed with no errors at all. I did the same to the new pair alone and it also passed with no errors. But when I installed them together memtest showed 10 errors on the first pass!
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 @ 3.3GHz (overclocking can't be the problem cause I tried everything both with defaults and custom settings) Team Xtreem Dark DDR2 1066 5-5-5-15 ASUS P5Q Pro
all tests run with latest memtest86 and Sandra Lite versions.
Any suggestions/corrections are highly appreciated cause this thing's driving me nuts...

Are you running the old pair as dual channel? Or could you have mixed them up and have a new one and old one trying to run in dual channel?
