    To be fair to Gigabyte, it might be a P35 limitation, I've read forums for other manufacturers where people have trouble with 4 sticks.

    I have 4 sticks of Crucial 1066 and the only way I could get 'em to work was to underclock to 1000. Tested both pairs in both sets of slots -- they work fine as pairs, but not with all 4 in at once.

    Turns out I can off-set the underclock by turning down the timing to 4-4-4-12.

    [edit]
    Possibly got them working at 1066, but over-volted. If a couple of hours of orthos don't make it flake out, I'll post how I got 'em working.
    [edit2]
    No dice, although it ran for an hour before failing instead of failing immediately by setting the voltage to 2.4 instead of 2.128. It would be nice to set my 2.2v ram to 2.2v or maybe even 2.3v, but I only have these choices:

    Normal: 1.872
    +0.1: 1.872
    +0.2: 2.128
    +0.3: 2.128
    +0.4: 2.4
    +0.5: 2.4

    I really hope they fix the voltage table in the next version of the bios.

    w00t.

    new F8 bios for P35C-DS3R:

    Normal : 2.4
    +0.1 : 2.0
    +0.2 : 2.128
    +0.3 : 2.256
    +0.4 : 2.4
    +0.5 : 2.528

    Not quite precise, but actually gives me a range to play with.

    [edit]
    Still can't run 4 sticks at 1066.

    I cant get my 4 sticks at 1066 either,. Corsair dominator 8500, it runs beautiful at 1050+- , is there a newer bios that has memory fixes in it? ram tests out fine at lower speed, but is nothing but errors and crashes at 1066, even with voltage bumped,, kinda aggrivating

    I set it at the manufacturers recommended timing and let the system auto detect by spd, plus loosening it up a little, nothing seems to work. but I can run it a few mhz below 1066 and everything is stable, even with cpu overclocked 1ghz higher. also tried bumping the voltage a little, but i am not going any more than the max recomended of 2.4. This board has the Corsair dominator 8500 ram listed in its compatiblity guide, so I dont know why it has such an issue, and the ram is fine, I have a Asus board that runs it quite nicely at 1066 with no errors on memtest, and stock 2.1 voltage, also goes all the way up to 1200 with stock voltage with no errors, but then again its not a p35 board. What are the changes in this new bios you have janus, I would be willing to try it if it would let me run my ram at stock speeds at least. With so many people having this issues with this board and this ram speed, I would think this is being worked on, because the board is not unstable, it runs fine at anything but the ram being clocked at 1066 or higher..

    Ok, one thing I did notice, is that although my ram is all the same exact model,. 2 of them have 2.1v spd, 2 have 2.2vspd, would this hurt anything? should I put the same voltage chips in the matching color slots, say 2.1+2.1 in green, and 2.2+2.2 in the others? I am at a loss. Also did check the voltage and ram is running at 2.2 so the mainboard has it right in automatic mode. thanks in advance.

    Janus, is there any way I could get the newest bios for this board, I am reduced down to 3gb of my pc28500 corsair dominator ram because using all 4 is unstable and using 1066mhz is unstable..

    The newest bios doesn't fix this issue, atleast for me. You'd be better off backing off your speed to get the 4gb to work. For me around 1000mhz worked, it may be different for you.

    eh even backing off the speed doesnt make it entirely stable, for me the only way is to use 3 sticks now. im about to see about RMA on this board, cant believe they let this many slip through with problems..

    Yeah I've been told to RMA as well, however I don't want to have to send this board back and wait forever to have a computer again.
