That reminds me; some mobos have a default fail-safe settings option with 
timings and stuff using very conservative numbers. If you haven't already 
tried that, you might want to give that one a go as well.

NB! This default setting is usually not optimal ("turbo"), but rather settles 
for stability. A working baseline kinda' thing, if you know what I mean.

If this doesn't work either, you're mem-sticks are as most here have pointed 
out, bad in some way.
