Sooo...you say that each of your old modules works in the sockets that you initially installed the new RAM?
And...neither of your new DIMMs works properly in the #1 memory slot?
We know that they don't play well together, I'd run Memtest on the new.
Is your old memory ECC, while the new is non-ECC? You want non-ECC RAM.
You didnt accidently get registered ECC server Ram did you?? I know if your looking on ebay ECC and Non ECC are all mixed together sometimes. Was the ram seated all the way? the two clips on both sides on the DIMM slot should be all the way up and hooked into the Ram.

I resolved my situation by slowing down my clock from 200 to 166 in the BIOS and all my modules could then peacefully coexist with the system. The inverse approach to what some prefer to do (overclock). No problems since then with that system.

I don't know if you used a RAM configurator to determine what modules you would purchase...but I think it's a good idea to do so.
