So just for fun I reverse mounted my board on the outside of the case. Easy access.

Hard drives, DVD, and Psup mounted inside.

Kinda wish somebody made a case that facilitated this kind of setup..

I love it! Just be careful of ESD! Very easy for someone to walk across the carpet and touch something....ZAPPP

Thanks for the photos. Very nice.

Try removing and reinstalling the DIMMs...
Check there's no "lint" in the memory slot...
Try swapping the DIMMs...
Try using slots 1&2 (no dual-channel), 2&4, 3&4 (No dual-channel)...
Try using only one DIMM...

Might be a hardware issue with your board or RAM.
These checks should help you identify it...

I'm using a single channel and all 4gb are seen correctly. :?:
"Troubles" only in dual channels mode.
"Troubles" in both 1&3 and 2&4 ?
What do you get in 2&4 ?

i don't know, but isn't there any settings in bios for dual channel mode?
as in photo second channel is seen but not enabled. o_O
If 2&4 works, it mostly discards the possibility of damaged RAM...
Now try using a single DIMM in Slot 3...
If it doesn't work, you might have to RMA your mobo...
Pc does not even start other than 1&2 (full 4gb single channel) or 1&3 (dual channel but with 2gb total ram )

Do you think it's a mobo problem?

I opened a gigabyte trouble-ticket.
Let's see what they say about this.
Thank's indeed for your help.

Hehe... Yeah, it's a little price to pay for silence ;)
I'm planning on going passive... But that will require more mileage... Monitoring & experimenting...

The Monster.

This was a gift. A Massive 56X55x20cm server box.

I could do a better job of tucking the wires away. But, the case is so big the current PSup wires barely reach their destinations. I also prefer to have my HD wires on the exit side of the case because I don't want to have to remove two panels just to get a Hard drive out.

It's huge and unwieldy but the space inside makes it easy to swap out parts for testing and the airflow keeps it cool.
