As david said must set CPC in bios to disable for 2t and have your run memtest from bios its at the bottom of genie bios.

I would start out with only 2 sticks in orange slots and tweak till you find good settings and then later move to 4 sticks as it is really hard to set up four sticks and settings will be much different that two. Check the stock speed and OC databases here on forum for your memory and settings.

Did you follow the build guide when you first built the system? If not, have a quick read as it contains some useful information. I'm assuming that your sets are 2 matched pairs. So, as a starting point, put one stick in the furthest orange slot from the CPU, and run MemTest from the BIOS. Repeat with each of your 4 sticks. If your settings aren't stable, then you're going to have to check the stock speed database for some settings for your RAM. If only 1 stick shows errors, then you're going to have to RMA that pair.

 

What BIOS are you using? 704-2bt (Big Toe's modded BIOS) is usually reported as being the most memory friendly BIOS. You can get it on TMod's BIOS CD in the BIOS factory. Main problem is that you'll really need to be at least memTest stable before you try flashing..

Just posted in other thread too - but from above it isn't sounding good... What was the other processor? Will this new one run all 4 of your sticks? Have you tried clearing CMOS after you changed processors over? How many volts are you trying to put through your 4400+, compared with whatever the other one is?
