With Core 2 Quad Q6600 CPU (65nm)

  • 2x 1GB : Doesn't boot
  • 2x 2GB : Doesn't boot
  • 1x 1GB : Boot
  • 1x 2GB : Boot

With Core 2 Quad Q9650 or Xeon X5460 (45nm)

It boots fine with 1 or 2 sticks, no issues.

This seems to be fixed in coreboot as if I flash coreboot 4.6 or git, it boots fine with 2 sticks with my Q6600.

I have heard that quad core processors don't work on libreboot yet. Not sure why though... Although intel ones don't work very well I think for a reason in particular... blobs/non-free firmware, etc...
