      Hi guys, I was trying to upgrade my RAM so I got the  CMX8GX3M4B1333C9  kit like the Corsair people told me to but it isn't  working.

      I set the times and voltage manually to 9-9-9-24 /  1.5V in the BIOS (I  also set the  frequency to 1066 like RAMGUY (the  guy from Corsair  forums) advised to everybody who's trying to run the 4  modules) and managed to run 2x2Gb in a pretty stable fashion. Further  from that, nothing but fail. If I add a third stick Windows won't load  and if I try with 4 sticks I get the memory error beeps (3) and won't  even POST. I also tried raising the MCH voltage but it didn't work.

      I doubt there's anything wrong with the kit because I swapped the  sticks around a couple of times and everything was cool as long I as I  ran just two.

      I'm not looking for speed at all, all I need is  as much stability as I can get. I attached a picture of the settings,  let me know what else you need.
