Argh... I've tried 3 different brands (mixing ofcourse :) ), but the only time I've gotten any of them to work together is on an intel platform (i875). Now I've got 1 x OZC 3200 (2x512) Platinum Ed. Rev 2. 1xCorsair Twinx1024 3200LL and 1 x OCZ 4000 (2x512) Platinum EL .. Neither 2 of those will work i my Asus A8V Deluxe (K8T800 PRO), any single pair of modules will work just fine. And ofcourse best performance is gained by using ht e Palt.Ed. Rev 2 modules from OCZ. But, what I'm in need of is getting more than 1GB of memory and my question is if I have to get another OCZ Plat Rev 2 pair or can I use one of the other two. And finally I'm having difficulties understanding the memory settings.... any clues?

Sorry, but AMD's onboard memory controller is just a hair unstable with 4 modules, most boards force lower speeds with 4 DIMMs populated. The chipset can be a factor, YOUR chipset seems to have problems with 3 modules (!) at full speed while nForce3 250 and SiS 755 chipsets seem more capable (depending on the BIOS defaults of the board maker).

Change (in the BIOS) the command rate to 2T. If still having problems, get a DFI NF4 board. Chances are it will work, maybe at a lower speed, maybe not. But it most definitely will not work at 1T.
