Thanks for your advice!
I want to mention this...
First, let me throw out a tidbit and be MORE SPECIFIC (I'm sorry I should of been more specific to begin with. Maybe it will make a difference?!?) about the memory I HAVE and the similar Corsair RAM that is recommend for all 4 slots or 8 GB:
A. What I am using (I HAVE) that is NOT recommended for ALL 4 slots in my mobo, only max. to 2 slots:
Corsair XMS2 4 GB 2 x 2 GB Modules DDR2 TWIN2X4096-6400C5
B. What is recommended to use with my mobo for ALL 4 slots for 8 GB:
Please see the attached QVL RAM Mobo chart for your help. [SOURCE: ASUS P5Q Motherboard User Guide E3790]
Take note of the 4 Corsair modules in the chart. The two sets of kits I have I have is highlighted in yellow. Like I said in my initial post, I misread the QVL chart before I purchased the second RAM kit and realized the mistake no too long ago.
*let me add some information to the charts so you can interpret A, B, and C for "DIMM Socket Support" mean:
A = Supports one module inserted into either slot as a single-channel memory configuration.
B = Supports one pair of modules inserted into either the yellow slots or the black slots as one pair of dual-channel memory configuration.
C = Supports four modules inserted into both the yellow and black slots as two pairs of dual-channel memory configuration.
My highlighted memory is missing the "C" potential. That is what I am trying to do. I already have "B". I mean... ...and the real question is this... ...CAN I STILL TRY TO GET IT WORK FOR ALL 4 SLOTS (BOTH KITS) IF IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED OR CAN'T I?!?!? Key words are: not *recommended*???
I hope this helps you.
