Not quite sure what to make of that. One thing that has historically been a weakness of the Abit boards is the clock output to the DIMMs, that is. if you run more DIMMs, you get too much load and the clock bogs down. There should be a few BIOS settings that you could try.

The first thing is to run a single DIMM at CAS-2, 4 way interleaving, DIMM driving strength to the higher setting (if that is an option), Bank settings to "Normal" (I really don't know what the board has because I don't do Abit because of all these problems). Post your BIOS settings and I'll walk you through.

Another thing you need to check is where your VI/O is. Set it to 3.3V, the reason is that the chips are high tech shrink die that don't like overvoltages whereas some generic DIMMs need that to even run.

I don't see how these DIMMs could not run at 110 MHz, though...
