    Runnign the RAM at 1066 with 4 DIMMs is really putting a lot of stress on the board and requires tweaking. This may well be what's causing your problem. It would be a good idea to tell us the "symptoms" though, it's kind of hard to diagnose without knowing any symptoms...
    My guess is that this is the RAM, to confirm this you can boot of the Vista DVD, but not run the setup but use TAB to select Windows Memory Diagnostic. If you get erros there then you have a RAM problem.
    You can try to just run the RAM at 800MHz, to do this go into the BIOS and M.I.T. and siable X.M.P. then set the system memory multiplier to 2.0B.
