Welcome to the Forums.

What is the make and model of the motherboard and each of the DIMMs?

FYI your link isn't working properly. To post a link you do not need to use the Insert a URL button. Just copy and paste the link into your post. Put the link on its own line or place a space before the link's URL and place a blank after it if more text follows it on the same line and it will then show up and behave properly for others viewing your post.
