|In #3 above you posted that you bought PC3200. Crucial calls for PC2700. |
Important to note that there are 2 models of your server listed at crucial. The 8676 takes modules CT527026. The 8830 takes modules CT1149441. Both are PC2700 and have 8 256 x 72 chips on them but obviously they are different in some respects.
There are many more specs than just the speed and the size of the chips. Latency for instance. With 8 sticks I would think they must be closely matched.
To me it is obvious the RAM you have is not fully compatible plus you are trying to mix RAM of two different capacities and who know what other spec differences.
Have you read the manual for your server to see how to load RAM. Are all the RAM slots the same color?
