Have you tried RAM from a different manufacturer?
I wish I could offer more/better advice but I wasted the better part of
two days trying to sort out vaguely similar RAM problems on a dual 240
Opteron system in our lab with an MSI 9131-v1.0 mb. We bought 4 sticks
of 1Gb ECC Registered and, no matter what combination of slots we used,
we were unable to get the machine to POST with all 4Gb installed.
Although any single or pairs of sticks worked just fine.
If anyone else is looking at large-ish-memory Opteron systems, I'd warn
folks about the build-it-yourself option since it can be a headache
trying to sort out hw compatibility issues.
