WHY??  There is nothing wrong with that motherboard -- I have three of
them.  You are at fault for trying to treat a consumer desktop 2P mobo as
a high-end server one.  People do not run 2GB DIMM's in an MSI K8T
Master2-FAR.  If you want >4GB RAM get an eATX 4+4 DIMM configuration
motherboard from Tyan or Iwill.

The MSI K8T Master2-FAR works fine with 1GB DIMM's.  Where on MSI's
website did they state 2GB double-stacked DIMM's were supported?
