Did you clear the CMOS and load defaults prior to loading the Patriot?

 

Then do a long CMOS clear like this and follow it exactly.

 

Test your memory with memtest by using tests #5 and #8 for 15-20 passes each. Then do all tests for 20 passes. Test the memory in the orange slots.

Yeah, follow Tasr's link to the letter. I don't know if it's all DFI LP boards, but mine would give nothing but problems if I tried to use both sticks right off the bat. Use a single stick like the guide says, then after setting defaults and rebooting, set the 250MHz SPD timings for your ram as a starting point, then save and reboot, then insert the second stick. Should work like a charm.
