    Let me have the link. Must be somebody that is using the memory at 1066.
    Thanks a lot for the support.

    Just bought #3 son same mobo & CPU for 'gradgyation' (yes another of my offspring that can read a cornflakes box and not look confused!) but using Geil 2x1GB DDR2-1066. No luck here yet so PLEZ keep us posted if you figure it out.

    Thanx, Skip

    One difference I did notice we're running the memory "unganged". This is a new one on me but from what little I read it sounded like "ganged" better performance for a single threaded app (game) and "unganged" for better multi thread or multiple applications running. Wasn't an option on my cheapie 740 chipset uATX mobo I have a Phenom 9550 in (ECS A740GM w/ AMD 740G / SB700).

    Also not in any my Q6600 mobos:
    Gigabyte GA-946GMX-S2 w/ Intel 946GZ / ICH7
    Gigabyte GA-G31MX-S2 w/ Intel G31 / ICH7
    Gigabyte GA-G31M-S2L w/ Intel G31 / ICH7
    Gigabyte GA-73VM-S2 w/ GeForce 7050 / 610i

    Looks to me like you are running all stock clock speeds.

    Take the "Set Memory Clock" off of AUTO and see what options you have there. That's were you would usually modify the multiplier to run the memory at 553, 667 or 800 or 1067. I'd do that before I touched any voltages since as it is now you're running the RAM at 800, it shouldn't need ANY bump in voltage.

    Please be sure to always press ctrl+F1 on the first page in your bios so you can get all your settings and features. This must be done every time.
    Your set memory clock is on auto it should be set to manual
    tRfc should be 127ns if it's 1GB 105ns if it's 512MB
    You will need to bump the memory voltage to 2.2 volts for DDR1066.

    Code:
    MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.)
    HT Link Frequency [Auto]
    VGA Core Clock control [Disabled]
    x VGA Core Clock (Mhz) 500
    CPU Clock Ratio [Auto]
    Memory Controller Freq. (Note) [Auto] 1800Mhz
    CPU Host Clock Control [Auto]
    x CPU Frequency (MHz) 200
    PCIE Clock (MHz) [Auto]
    Set Memory Clock [Manual]
    x Memory Clock X533 = DDR1066
    DCTs Mode (Note) [Unganged]
    ******** System Voltage Optimized ********
    System Voltage Control [MAnual]
    x DDR2 Voltage Control +.4
    x NorthBridge Volt Control Normal
    x CPU Voltage Control Normal
    Normal CPU Vcore 1.1000V
    After making these changes save and exit. Then reboot back into bios and always ctrl+F1 Enter timing items. Set timing items to manual. make adjustments to them. Save and exit reboot into bios ctrl+F1 check to see if changes were made successfully. If not set to perform DQS training and save and exit reboot into Windows. Give it time for the DQS training to perform the screen may be blank for a few min.
    Code:
    DRAM Configuration
    DDRII Timing Items [Manual] SPD Auto
    x CAS# latency Auto 5T 5T
    x RAS to CAS R/W Delay Auto 5T 5T
    x Row Precharge Time Auto 5T 5T
    x Minimum RAS Active Time Auto 18T 18T
    x 1T/2T Command Timing Auto 2T
    x TwTr Command Delay Auto 3T 3T
    x Trfc0 for DIMM1 Auto 127ns 127ns
    x Trfc2 for DIMM2 Auto - - - -
    x Trfc1 for DIMM3 Auto 127ns
    x Trfc3 for DIMM4 Auto - - - -
    x Write Recovery Time Auto 6T 6T
    x Precharge Time Auto 3T 3T
    x Row Cycle Time Auto 24T 24T
    x RAS to RAS Delay Auto 3T 3T
