I wasn't to sure of it myself until I got to experience it first hand... sadly I don't think Crucial can claim their kits work in all situations anymore, and it kinda killed any interest of mine in Crucial enthusiast kits. Even booting from a single module just wouldn't work!
It pretty well cemented Corsair as my brand of choice, there just isn't anything these PC2-6400 kits can't do.
