I think the first gen Althons just can't handle 4GB of ram... My 3800+ X2 will not even post with 4 x 1GB in a DFI lanparty board, and it will post on a gigabyte board, but it throws all kinds of errors. The same ram used on an A8N-SLI with an opty processor will run just fine. Could be the boards too I suppose, but you'd think the DFI expert should be able to handle it.
