    Was thinking that too but now its stable 100% at 1111, its all good. I used a cpu fsb of 333 and memory ratio of 3.33 and totally stable. Really fast too. I have pictures of my bios settings if anyone wants it.

    Thanks

    Yeah that is more like it anyway. Ya I hear alot better to try to run above or below 1066 but not right at 1066.

    Might as well post them now before you forget them and someone asks and you are not around that day. Might just saves someone night, as you know finding the right settings/timings can be very painful sometimes!

    Robust Graphic Booster = Auto
    CPU Host Frequency = 333
    PCI Express Frequency = 100
    C.I.A.2 = Disabled
    Performance Enhance = Standard
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD) = 3.33C
    Dram Timing Selectable = Manual
    Cas Latency Time = 5
    Dram Ras# to Cas# Delay = 5
    Dram Ras # Precharge = 5
    Precharge Delay = 15
    Act to Act Delay (trrd) = 3
    Rank Write to read Delay = 3
    Write to precharge delay = 6 (I use 3 and its stable)
    Refresh to act delay = 42
    Read to Precharge Delay = 3
    Static tRead Value = 6 (i use 5 and its stable but 4 is not)
    Static tRead Phase Adjust = 1
    Command Rate = 2T

    All the setting for voltage is normal but

    DDR2 OverVoltage Control = +0.25
    CPU Voltage Control = 1.325 (I use 1.3125 and is table)

    These are the base settings I use to get it 100% stable and start to play around with some of the setting to see if I can get it faster.

    Your right about most board do no like 1066 but if you over clock above by abit, its stable. I guess its the cold problem with cpu's did not like 350 but 349 and 351 stable. That where I got the idea to overclock it abit and see if it will be stable and it is plus bonus extra memory speed too.

    Going to try over the weekend to lower the memory setting until I can get the fastest settings.

    Hope this helps you all. If you have other setting you find that works and is faster than what I have. Please post :)

    Thanks all

    Oh forgot to add, for memory settings do not use Auto. It not stable using it. Hard set the memory timings and all other memory settings.

    Thanks

    So try above as suggested or below. This is a widely known issue, best thing to do is get 2x2GB and sell your 4x1GB sticks
    What mean ALL boards? For example, P35-DS4 at 800 MHz? I have a lot BSOD since I've put 4x1GB sticks. Should I
    really sold them and buy 2x2GB? What if I need 8GB?

    No, I meant all boards have issues trying to run 4 sticks at 1066Mhz.

    You will need to post all your info for me to tell you what I think about your bsod issues.

    Here is a little BIOS layout, copy and paste in your settings and post back. If there is something extra leave it out, if you have something different add it in>>>

    Robust Graphics Booster___________ [Auto]
    CPU Clock Ratio ____________ [XX]
    CPU Host Clock Control_ [Enabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [266]
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [102]
    C.I.A. 2__________________________ [Disabled]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [2.00]
    DRAM Timing Selectable_______ SPD __ [Manual]

    CAS Latency Time_____________ 5 ____ ?
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay______ 5 ____ ?
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay_____5 ____?
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)________15 ____ ?
    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)_______4 _____ ?
    Rank Write to READ Delay______3 _____ ?
    Write to Precharge Delay______6 _____ ?
    Refresh to ACT Delay________42 ______ ?
    Read to Precharge Delay_______4 _____ ?
    Static tRead Value_______________ 1-31
    Static tRead Phase Adjust________ 1-31

    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [+0.300V]
    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ [+0.1V]
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ [+0.1V]
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.1V]
    CPU Voltage Control_______ [1.25]

    And you say "Since" did you test the stick before you started using them? They could have come DAO, working but with errors. I would put them in 2 a ta time and go to stock settings and run memtest86+ on them. Both pairs separately, you may just have bad sticks and need to RMA them

    I'm already running on stock settings. I've found no
    errors on memtest with settings below, but if I reduce
    DDR2 voltage slightly e.g. to +0.25V I get errors on memtest test 1 at approx. 3GB address, regardless of timings. If I swap pairs of sticks I still get errors in the similar address range.
    Pairs of sticks do not lead to any errors alone, only
    if all four are put in. I have also tested all four sticks
    together on another mobo and no errors were found.

    My current setings are (in place of question marks) :
    Robust Graphics Booster___________ [Auto]
    CPU Clock Ratio ____________ [8x]
    CPU Host Clock Control_ [Disabled] i.e. 333
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [333]
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [Auto]
    C.I.A. 2__________________________ [Disabled]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [Auto]
    DRAM Timing Selectable_______ SPD __ [Manual]

    CAS Latency Time_____________ 5 ____4
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay______ 5 ____ 4
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay_____5 ____4
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)________15 ____ 12
    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)_______4 _____ 3
    Rank Write to READ Delay______3 _____ 3
    Write to Precharge Delay______6 _____ 6
    Refresh to ACT Delay________42 ______ 42
    Read to Precharge Delay_______4 _____ 3
    Static tRead Value_______________ 6
    Static tRead Phase Adjust________ 25

    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [+0.35V]
    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ [Normal]
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ [Normal]
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [Normal]
    CPU Voltage Control_______ [Normal]

    I would try adding .50v, .75v, +1v to the MCH. And I would try taking the system memory multiplier out of auto, and setting it to whatever is closest to what you want.

    If you are wanting 800 you will need to overclock your cpu maybe. As I said I will be posting a guide that you help you alot with all of that, tonight when I get home.

    All that being said, I always say leave nothing on auto. But for now try adding some volts to the MCH until I get the guide posted to better help you

    As for your memory voltage, what is it supposed to be on, sometimes more doesnt help

    And also Static tRead may need to be 7 or 8 with 4 sticks, but try adding more mch before changing that

    So I'll try to add +0.05V to MCH. My memory is supposed
    to work at 2.1V.

    This seems to be hopeless. Even with MCH +0.1V,
    DDR2 +0.3V, Static tRead Value 8 i still get
    error on memtest test #1 (address test). Errors
    do appear above 2GB e.g:
    0x000aefc1d70 (2799.0MB)
    0x000bf381778
    0x000c8818ed4
    0x00105b03e38
    Curiously, error rate in memtest increases with MCH overvoltage. This looks like NorthBridge overheating problem for me, memory seems to be OK. As i wrote before it has been tested on another PC.
    Any further suggestions?
