I found a set of 4x1GB DDR2 Corsair Dominator Ver 1.2 memory that also had the memory fan included. I got them for my 775 boards but was looking at using them in my AM2+ board also. I already had my AM2+ ECS IC780M-A (I Cafe) setup in a basic air cooled config. I was unable to test them on the 12th and 13th. I pulled them out this morning to see if they might help the AM2+ setup with a Athlon 64 5000+ X2 processor. I installed 2 sticks and powered up. All I got was a blank screen, no beeps or post. Knowing that it was a memory problem because I had it running with different memory a few days before, I started trouble shooting. I inserted 1 memory stick in the first slot and power up. I did this with all 4 memory sticks and only 1 stick allowed the board to boot up into windows. The other 3 sticks just left me with a blank screen. I contacted the seller and informed him of my problem. He responded back that he had tested the memory on an Intel system before selling them. I pulled out my modded P5E and set it up to test the memory. When using the Intel board all 4 sticks worked. I'm not sure if this is an AMD problem as the ECS board was $50 NIB way back then. I'll have to investigate this problem more at another time.
