Uh oh..shouldn't have gotten 4*512MB sticks dude..I think there's still some things you must learn before you start dishing out that much cash. When you run 4*512MB sticks on an Athlon 64 based system the memory controller (that's built into the processor) can't handle that many DIMMs. In order to compensate for this it runs the sticks at a 2T command rate. This is unfortunate because there is no way around it and you get a pretty hefty performance decrease when this happens. Next time..
